Edge

Reel Education

From March 2-11 Miami will be packed with film directors and fanatics as Miami Dade College presents the 24th Annual Miami International Film Festival (MIFF).

The MIFF provides for the exhibition of international and US films with a special focus on Ibero-American cinema. Last year, over 250 screenings were held and 67,000 people attended.

This year, screenings will be held at six different locations throughout Miami including: The Gusman Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Miami, Regal South Beach Cinema in South Beach, Tower Theater in Little Havana, Sunrise Intracoastal Cinema in North Miami Beach, The Bill Cosford Cinema at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, and The Colony Theatre in Miami Beach.

The University of Miami School of Communication along with Miami Dade College is also presenting a weeklong REEL Education Seminar Series including over 26 seminars.

For those who never experienced the MIFF before, it can seem overwhelming, so EDGE has collected the vital information here to help you make the most of it.
