18th Miami Short Film Festival

When: November 4-9, Various Times

Where: Regal Cinema Lincoln Road South Beach, 1120 Lincoln Road

About: October 3, 2019 (Miami, FL) — The 18th edition of the MIAMI short Film Festival is headed
back to the beach this year, taking place at the Regal Cinemas on Lincoln Road November 4-9,
2019. This year’s event will showcase over 60 short films at 8 unique screenings throughout the
week, and a variety of events including post-screening Q&A sessions, workshops, seminars,
and parties. In continuing its new partnership with Deering Estate, the festival will also host
auxiliary events at its theatre for those who can’t make it to the beach.

For its 18th year, official selections were chosen from over 1200 submissions across 45
countries. Every screening this year is unique, with an amazing selection of programming
ranging from narratives and documentaries to music videos, animation, and experimental
shorts. This year’s themes resonate with the current cultural climate, with topics such as gun
control, immigration, and the environment. One highlight from this year is Safety, the critically acclaimed
film directed by Fabrice Joubert. Adapted from the short story by Lydia Fitzpatrick, it
centers around a small town boy trapped in his school gymnasium as gunfire erupts. The short
has been sweeping the festival circuit and has Oscar buzz written all over it.

Outside of the week’s film screenings, there will also be several post-screening Q&A sessions
with filmmakers and actors, as well as workshops and seminars throughout the week, with
schedules to be confirmed. This is set to be one of the biggest festivals to date, with over a
dozen directors confirming attendance already. As always, the festival will host its opening
night party and closing night gala, after the official awards ceremony.

Tickets for all screenings are available now, visit www.miamisff.com for showtimes and
