Make It Movie Night Every Night at the Miami Film Festival  

By Isabel Pulgarin 


Directed by Women, Spotlight on Cuba, and Black & African diaspora are just a couple of the categories to be featured in Miami Dade College’s 41st Miami Film Festival coming April 5 and spanning 10 days. The festival will showcase 180 international and local stories with several stars pit-stopping for Q&A’s and awards.  


Tom Hiddleston, aka Marvel’s “Loki”; Sheryl Lee Ralph from “Abbot Elementary”; Tony Goldwyn from “Scandal”; Danny Pino from “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit”; Molly Ringwald from “Pretty in Pink”; and Adria Arjona from the 2022 Miami reboot of “Father of the Bride” are a few of the actors visiting screenings and receiving awards at this year’s festival. You can buy tickets to the presentations and red carpet. 


Being a student, you can get tickets as low as $14.50 with your Barry email and while general admission ranges between $15-$34, depending on the venue. This year, the venues for films include Coral Gables Art Cinema and the Bill Cosford Cinema in Coral Gables, and Miami venues like Silverspot Cinema, Mayfair House Hotel & Garden, Miami Dade College’s Koubek Memorial Center in Little Havana, Regal South Beach and the Knight Concert Hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center. 


There’s a film, documentary, or short film for everyone—not to mention parties to mingle with other film lovers at the end of each weekend night. 


A few highly anticipated movies are sold out like the queer, Latino film “Fallen Fruit” made in MIA and “The Shadow Of the Sun,” but there are scores of premieres you can schedule and fill your days the week of April 5-14 with like highly anticipated Wattpad-esque romance “The Idea of You” with Anna Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine, a Little Haiti based film, “Mountains,” preceded by a short film with a post-screening Q&A with its director and actor, and the world premiere of a film spotlighting Cuban stories, “Seguridad.”

A documentary about the most famous orca in captivity, Lolita, and Miami Seaquarium and the quest to relocate her before her death last August is also having its world premiere April 6. Its award-winning presentation and director Q&A come after Miami Seaquarium was ordered to close its doors earlier this month following several violations and failures to follow federal laws and regulations by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
