MIAMI- April 17, 2015The Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (MGLFF) will once again go beyond celluloid excitement to feature over-the-top events as only Miami knows how to party — from an Award gala to a soiree where high hair and high heels are encouraged, says Mark Gilbert, President/Interim Festival Director of the MGLFF.

 

“This year our guests will have several opportunities to meet filmmakers, producers and actors from all over the world,” notes Gilbert. “We are incredibly excited about the events that we have planned for this year and also about the amazing amount of talent coming to town from all over the globe – 37 filmmakers and actors at last count. In addition, we’ve planned some pretty outrageous parties throughout the festival including one where people can strut their stuff in stilettos.”

 

The 17TH Annual Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival will feature more than 75 films from 26 different countries including feature-length movies, documentaries and short films that chronicle the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender experience. Included in the line-up will be five world premieres, one international premiere, 11 North American premieres, one U.S. premiere, seven East Coast premieres, and 12 Southeast premieres.

 

The Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival is presented by SHOWTIME, Merrill Lynch and Miami-Dade County. For more information, to view film trailers, or to purchase tickets or memberships, visit www.mglff.com.
