Celebrate Indie Movies at MiFo LGBT Film Festival

mifo-horizontalLast week we talked about the Miami Beach Gay Parade happening next weekend, but it’s not the only LGBT themed event taking place during the month of April.  Film festivals are frequently held throughout Miami and Miami Beach and next month will see the arrival of the 18th annual MiFo LGBT Film Festival, formerly known as the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.

The MiFo LGBT Film Festival is designed to present a varied and culturally diverse array of films, video, and other media depicting the rich history and contemporary perspectives of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience.  It’s actually comprised of two different festivals happening in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, the latter taking place in October.  The Miami version of MiFo has expanded from a three-day event into a ten-day event showcasing over sixty unique films and is now recognized not only for its rich showcase of films, but for also being the largest LGBT cultural arts event in South Florida.

This year’s MiFo LGBT Film Festival kicks off on April 22nd and tickets are currently on sale for $13 if purchased in advance.  There will also be an opening and closing night film after party featuring an open bar, dancing, and small bites.  The opening party has yet to be determined, while the closing night party will be taking place at the Albion Hotel on James Avenue in Miami Beach.

If you need a place to stay during the MiFo LGBT Film Festival, the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach prides itself on being very LGBT friendly.  You’ll find 79 inviting suites in our Miami Beach hotel and a varied assortment of great amenities to complement what’s sure to be a memorable stay.

Spring Shopping on Lincoln Road

lincolnRoadThe spring season is the perfect time to stay at a Miami Beach hotel.  With the temperatures increasing to agreeably warm numbers, the barrier island is full of various activities and places to shop while enjoying the richly diverse ambiance and breezy weather.  Speaking of shopping, Lincoln Road is the perfect place to find a variety of items, whether it’s a new season appropriate outfit or some new gear for the beach.

If you’re looking to take selfies by the beach and are in the mood for a new phone, consider one of the latest iPhones at the Apple Store.  Will you be taking your pooch for a stroll?  The Dog Bar on Jefferson Avenue has toys, beds and even outfits for your best friend.  Despite the rise in reading devices like the ubiquitous Amazon Kindle, Books & Books continues to sell good old fashioned page turners so you can read the latest bestseller or a more obscure title while lounging on the beach.

Will you be hitting up any parties or clubs? Apparel and accessories are aplenty throughout Lincoln Road, including major brand names like Anthropologie, H&M, Forever 21 and Banana Republic to local boutiques showcasing season appropriate fashions.

The Z Ocean Hotel South Beach is barely ten minutes away from Lincoln Road.  We provide 79 inviting suites with plenty of plush amenities, and our staff can recommend some of the best places to shop on Lincoln Road or close to our South Beach hotel.  Call 1.877.688.4232 to book your reservation before we’re all booked for the spring season.
