Miami International Film Festival (MiamiFF), a program of Miami Dade College’s MDCulture, proudly unveiled today the official poster for the 32nd edition, featuring legendary writer, producer and director Orson Welles strolling the Miami Beach boardwalk in 1943. Adding a layer of Welles-ian mystery, the photographer of this remarkable 70-year-old image is unknown. So whodunit? The festival invites the public to help solve this mystery as it gears up for its international film premieres and festival activities taking place March 6 - 15, 2015. The image of Welles walking in Miami Beach is a multi-dimensional thrill-ride of potential descriptors for locals: pride, nostalgia, iconography, legends, celebrities, classics, vintage, and the beauty of our beaches. The Festival’s dynamic (remarkable is repeated too many times) slate of films and distinguished filmmakers featured in the past 32 years illustrates that Miami has long been a mecca for the greatest artists of our time, filing in for inspiration, collaboration and relaxation, following in the footsteps of the giants who have come before.Says MiamiFF Executive Director Jaie Laplante, “When we found this photograph of Orson, it was like multiple lightning bolts of yes; yes, let’s all bow to his mastery; yes, Miami’s allure has always attracted…

Art Deco Weekend 2015 Featured

Published in Things to do Miami    Written by
What began as a grassroots festival to bring awareness to South Beach’s movement to preserve its plethora of neglected Art Deco buildings and hotels, has grown into the largest celebration of historical structures from the 20s, 30s and 40s-era. Today, Art Deco Weekend has evolved to include musical performances, fashion shows, walking tours, movie screenings, lecture series and antique cars. Over 400,000 people attend annually and it’s a must-see event for locals and tourists alike.Initially, the impetus to recognize South Beach’s Art Deco architecture was spurred on by activists Barbara Baer Capitman, John Capitman and Leonard Horowitz, who founded the Miami Design Preservation League (MDPL) in 1976. Two years later, they held the first Art Deco Festival, which was actually a week long event. As the festival grew, so, too, did the preservation movement, and since 1992, South Beach’s Art Deco buildings are no longer in danger. Art Deco Weekend 2015 celebrates 100 years of history, architecture and people! Join us January 16th – 18th as we take a step back in time and remember the last 100 years of Miami Beach.Every year during Art Deco Weekend, Miami Design Preservation League closes Ocean Drive to traffic.
