MIFF: back for its 30 years anniversary
The Miami International Film Festival (MIFF) began 30 years ago as an independant world cinema festival. It was later run by Florida International University from the early 90’s on, until 2003 when Miami Dade College took over its operation. MIFF has since expanded to include numerous venues throughout Miami beyond the original residence at the historic Gusman Center, and has strived to showcase the best of independant and emerging film-makers, with a strong focus on Ibero-American film.
This year’s edition will feature 117 feature films and 12 shorts from 41 countries participating in various competition categories (world, ibero-american, documentary, short, experimental, Florida-centric...). Among foreign features, the festival’s program includes 3 French films ("Ann and Jerome" by Mélanie Delloye, "A Perfect Plan" by Pascal Chaumeil and "Hand in Hand" by Valérie Donzelli) and 4 French co-productions.
In préamble to the festival, don’t miss the month-long retrospective series at the Tower Theater showcasing the best of 30 years of festival programming.
