Miami International Film Festival Opening Night!

It's back my friends, Its the Miami International Film Festival and this year its celebrating it's 30th year of Film Fabness! For the past 2 years I have attended the Miami International Film Festival events and screenings only hoping to be more thrilled and entertained than I was the year before if that's even possible. The night kicked off with the opening screening of  Twenty Feet From Stardom directed by Morgan Neville,  a documentary that shines a light on the black back-up singers who lend their strong voices to the songs that have become some of our favorites. Neville interviews music legends such as Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, and Stevie Wonder, whose music has been transformed by the help of the back-up singers. However, the real stars of the film are singers like Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, and Lisa Fischer. These women tell their stories behind their careers, their anonymity, and their experience being twenty feet from stardom. MIFF’s Ultimat Opening Night Party directly followed the screening. MIFF patrons witnessed the transformation of the historic Alfred|Dupont building with state-of-the-art adornments and savory food stations brought to you by the finest local restaurants including Tuyo Restaurant, 5 Napkin Burger, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, La Taberna Giralda, Morton’s The Steakhouse, The Oceanaire Seafood Room, Piola, Season’s 52 Fresh Grill & Wine Bar, and Truluck’s Seafood, Steak & Crab House. Drinks such as Jolivet Sancerre wine, provided by Frederick Wildman, and an Ultimat Bar, provided by PatrĂ³n, was flowing throughout the evening. Attendees danced to music provided by MTV’s DJ Mauricio through the night in anticipation of the remaining Festival dates.Allow me to walk you through my night!



The Dupoint Building was filled with Film Enthusiast and what could possibly be better than a crowd of people who obviously showed up to show out and have a good time!
