About the Miami International Film Festival

This year’s Miami International Film Festival (2019) will begin on March 1st and end on March 10th. All movie lovers will find something to entertain at this festival. All over the city of Miami, films are screened for the delight of fans and movie makers.

History of the Festival

The very first Miami International Film Festival took place on February 3rd, 1984. Organization and administration of the festival have bounced between organizations, but since 2003, all authority has been with MDC (Miami Dade College).

It has been Miami Dade College who has created the festival as we know it today. They have helped it grow in breadth and depth. Each year, cash awards are also given to filmmakers. This year more than 1 million dollars will be given to deserving filmmakers.

Of course, there are other events at the film festival as well. These include parties, dinners, award ceremonies, and much more!
