The 37th edition of the Miami Film Festival is showcasing emerging and diverse filmmakers from around the world. This year more than 30 countries are being represented with over 125 feature narratives, documentaries and short films of all genres. International and Ibero-American films will be presented over a course of 10 days and awards totaling more than $150,000 are given within competition categories.
After attracting approximately 45,000+ people last year, from filmmakers, to producers, to actors, and most of all industry professionals the cosmopolitan community of Miami is preparing to draw over 60,000 individuals this year.
With over a hundred possibilities, a very straight-forward but yet extremely filled schedule has been published on the Miami Film Festival website, to aide viewers that want to enjoy as much as possible. For opening night, a classic art world noir thriller The Burnt Orange Heresy by the late, great Miami writer Charles Willeford has been modernized by Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Capotondi and Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Scott Smith. A biting satire that captivates the audience through the complex world of high art dealing and criticism. Hired by an unethical art dealer (Mick Jagger) to steal a one of a kind painting from the most enigmatic painter (Donald Sutherland) of all time, an aspiring art critic (Claes Bang) becomes obsessed with succeeding but his own insecurities knock down his carefully laid out plan. After such a thrilling experience, opening night continues with an unforgettable party hosted at The Historic Alfred I. DuPont Building. Surrounded by colorful artwork, delicious food from Miami’s best and most loved restaurants while listening to the newest tracks, the ambience will recreate a tropical oasis where guest will be able to experience the ideal South Florida day.
In 2018, the Miami Film Festival was nominated as “One of the 50 Film Festivals Worth The Entry Fee” by Moviemaker Magazine, and ever since several major publications, such as Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, have attended and reviewed the films submitted.
