This year’s Miami Film Month will also celebrate local emerging filmmakers by showcasing a collection of short films created by Miami area producers throughout the month of June. The exclusive collection of films were curated from a host of Miami’s best films, many of which have screened at prestigious festivals such as Miami International Film Festival, the Sundance Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival and more. Following each screening, an interactive panel will take place where the filmmakers discuss their work, professional journey and Miami’s burgeoning film scene. The panel will be moderated by Kevin Sharpley, filmmaker and Chairman of the Miami-Dade County Film and Entertainment Advisory Board.

In an effort to promote and encourage local filmmakers, Miami Film Month will nominate one lucky Featured Filmmaker who either hails from the city or has created films in or about Miami. The selected Featured Filmmaker will have the opportunity to showcase their films at Miami Light Project and participate in a post-screening session called “Conversation With,” in which a moderator will highlight the artist’s career. Additionally, there will be an interactive Q&A between the artist and the audience during the latter part of the program.
