Knight Heroes


After the success of last year's Knight Heroes, the series returns to the Miami Film Festival to spotlight the boldest and brightest talents in film today. This year's invited speakers are the award-winning directors Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar), Stella Meghie (The Photograph starring LaKeith Stanfield and Issa Rae) and Miami native Lulu Wang (the Golden Globe-winning The Farewell).

The invited Knight Heroes will give a talk proceeded by an “in conversation” discussion geared to engage with the emerging filmmaking community in Miami and Southern Florida.

This program is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
