GEMS (October 22-25, 2015)

What is GEMS?

GEMS is the 33-year-old Miami International Film Festival’s new fall event created to dazzle Miami filmlovers with the “gems” of the current season in preparation for the 33rd Miami International Film Festival (which runs next year March 4-13, 2016). Taking place over four days (October 22 – 25, 2015), GEMS will distill the annual Festival experience of showcasing the best of world cinema, into a concentrated weekend of 14 premieres accompanied by in-person appearances by visiting filmmakers, as well as seminars, parties and additional events.
