As I warmly recall the wild summer nights that I first hit the scene, when Jennys Was A Friend of Mine and together we discovered on the dance floor the kind of magic that took us to Such Great Heights and back again; I realize that no matter what the current trend is, Miami needs an indie dance party!
The District may not be around anymore but luckily The Vagabond has “reloaded” their weekly Friday party with an arsenal of indie dance magic; guaranteed to bring back that Electric Feel and give the Young FolkWhat You Want and the rest of us what we need – indie rock, dirty disco, house, and electro beats!
FILMGATE is an independent film festival for anyone interested in exhibiting a project that has interactive and multi-platform elements - film, ARGs, dance, live music, web series, comic books, opera, book, tv show, games, flash mob, blog, animation or other creative channel.
You’re only limited by your imagination, so choose your own adventure and invite the audience to dive in!
Halloween is over, but our love for gore is not. Everyone knows that the “The Shining” is picked as the best horror film ever made. We can also talk about why the unholy threesome countries of horror filmmaking are easily the USA, Japan and Korea, but this is not the topic of today.
Today we share with you some of our favorite horror films produced right here in South Florida. We recommend you grab a blanket over the holidays, some hot chocolate, cuddle up and check them out.
Shorts are perhaps not the most obvious route a beginning filmmaker might take. You can’t pop down to the local theatre and see them. The only ones you can recall being in the public discourse are the ones shown before Pixar blockbusters.
So what’s the point? Why even bother? If it’s not a feature – what use is it, because no one’s going to see it anyway?
Whether you’re just starting out or an old pro, shorts DO have a point, you SHOULD bother, and people WILL see them.
If you wanted to challenge yourself to a marathon-like experience as a filmmaker, the 48-hour film festival must be it. As the name implies, you conceive, shoot, edit and deliver a short film in not a second over 48 hours.
This is the best cure for the procrastinating filmmaker, you have a movie in a weekend. So when the contest happened two weeks ago, we decided, there is no better or more productive way to spend a sleepless weekend.
