The new Cinépolis movie theater in Coconut Grove will be giving one lucky Miami International Film Festival attendee an incredible prize of their own: a double-guest pass good for complimentary admission to the theater every day, any day for a full 365 days.
All you have to do to be eligible is purchase a ticket to at least one of the 24 films in this year’s Festival vying for the audience-voted $10,000 cash Knight Documentary Achievement Award, fill out your ballot after the screening (including your full name, phone number & email), and drop it in the ballot box at the exit.
The more films in this category you attend, and vote, the more chances you have to win. As you plan your Festival schedule, make sure to include at least one film that is eligible for the Knight Documentary Achievement Award, indicated by the red ballot box symbol on the film’s webpage.
Not only will you be helping your favorite documentary filmmaker out with the chance to win $10,000 cash, each time you vote, you’ll be entered for a drawing that will take place at the Patrón XO Igloo Café Awards Night Party, presented by The Historic Alfred I. Dupont Building courtesy of The TILIA Companies on Saturday, March 14.
With today being President’s Day, consider adding Morgan Neville and Robert Gordon’s Best of Enemies to your shopping carts. A riveting series of explosive TV debates between Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley Jr., as Republicans and Democrats met in 1968 to choose their presidential candidates—this slice of American and Miami Beach history is not to be missed.
Neville, who won an Oscar for 20 Feet From Stardom, will be on hand for this special Miami Manifesto presentation—showing extra footage not included in the final film during an extended conversation with programmer Thom Powers following the screening at 1:00 PM on Sunday, March 8 at Coral Gables Art Cinema. Your ticket includes a post-screening reception sponsored by SundanceNOW Doc Club at the theater. – Jaie Laplante
