At Soho Studios, we get excited about local events, and we are excited about all the great events taking place in Miami during June for Miami Film Month. The entire month is packed with exciting things to do, and here are a few of the events you do not want to miss. Multiple film festivals are taking place during Miami Film Month, and from June 15-19, 2016 you will have the chance to check out the American Black Film Festival, which works to bring more awareness to entertainment content that’s made about and by individuals of African descent. Not only will you get the chance to enjoy the festival, but it’s also a great way to support equal opportunities for black artists within the film industry.
Whether you are a fan of critically acclaimed, internationally renowned, or independent films, local Miami art cinemas are showing something for everyone during the month of June, which we are thrilled to hear. To celebrate Miami Film Month, participating art cinemas are offering $8 films, which means you will want to take advantage of this deal and enjoy as many great films as possible. Participating cinemas include the Miami Beach Cinematheque, Bill Cosford Cinema, O Cinema Wynwood, Coral Gables Art Cinema, and MDC’s Tower Theater.
A huge part of Miami Film Month is the big video contest, and this year the contest is for videos that show off the multicultural culinary scene that we have so come to appreciate in Miami. Not only will William Vela, director of the Miami Short Film Festival, be critiquing the top videos, the winning video will be shown at the Miami Short Film Festival later, which takes place later in the year. Winners will also have their videos screened at the closing Miami Film Month event on June 30, 2016, which will take place at the Little Haiti Cultural Center.
Even the Perez Art Museum Miami is getting involved in the Miami Film Month action, featuring a special film installation that is being added to the museum’s permanent collection, Luanada-Kinshasa by Stan Douglas. This piece will not only be shown during the month of June, but throughout the entire summer in PAMM’s auditorium.
From exciting $8 films at local art cinemas to incredible film festivals, there is so much going on this month to celebrate Miami Film Month. We’re excited to get in on the action, and you’re sure to find an event you enjoy in the city this month.
