Miami Film Festival
Miami, Florida / March 1-10, 2019 / miamifilmfestival.com / S, V
This past March, Miami Film Festival wrapped its 35th year as one of the Sunshine State’s brightest and best fests in grand fashion. Argentinian director Diego Lerman took home the $30,000 grand prize for his best film-winning A Sort of Family, Jason Reitman world premiered the Charlize Theron-starring Tully, and Isabelle Huppert attended to accept the festival’s Gem-Icon Award. MFF brings out the big names, but they also make ample space for smaller projects through contests, like their HBO-backed Ibero-American Competition for Hispanic and Ibero-American moviemakers.
