Last 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.
