European film festival in Miami, May 3-10,2012

[About The Festival]

The European Film Festival [in Miami] has a unique position in the landscape of the major film festivals. For the last 6 years, thousands of film enthusiasts and industry professionals from all over the world meet in Miami and transform the city into an international capital of auteur cinema. The weeklong festival has become an important meeting point for the European film industry to share their thirst for new discoveries and passion for cinema.

Red Chemistry Inc, a non-profit organization incorporated in Florida with a mission to promote the art of filmmaking in South Florida and around the world, was created by Isabelle Lambert in 2006. Since then, the Festival has brought more than 150 films in 12 languages from all over Europe. Cultural, institutional and corporate partners have supported this event to promote European film industry for the last five years.

In 2012, the European Film Festival in Miami will offer about 45 screenings - taking place at Miami’s busiest film locations. Locations such as the newly renovated Miami Beach Cinematheque, Cinema O, The Gusman Theater, Miami Beach Colony Theater and the brand new Coral Gables Art Cinema.

Located at the crossroads of a multi-cultural audience and thanks to the Eurocinema V.O.D release, the festival has become a unique launch platform for new films from Europe. In order to reinforce its position as a major film festival, prestigious opening and parties will take place during the course of the festival. Filmmakers, actors and producer who come to Miami for the premiere of their films will have a unique opportunity to interact with cultural personalities, celebrities, and carefully selected guests during various evening events. Media coverage and public relations will be handled by the well-established Tara Ink agency.

To help promote Miami´s up and coming talents, the Festival will organize a Short Film Competition where local film students will present their work. In addition, an international jury will select the best feature films among all the films screened during the Festival. The winner will receive a prize during the closing night ceremony.

The European Film Festival is going to reach new heights and aim at becoming the first event to connect South Florida with today´s best talents in the European film industry.
