The “European Film Festival”, produced by Red Chemistry, Inc., welcomes the community and all film enthusiasts to the debut of 25 foreign independent feature films from 10 different European countries on May 31 through June 7.
The festival is committed to bring Miami’s attention to European cultural and social issues as well as showcase a completed student feature and short film program at FIU (Florida International University) and local high schools. Students from Ischs Charter School, Miami Beach High, and Hialeah High participated in the competition by analyzing and sorting through the best European short films judged by a panel of international film experts such as directors, script writers, producers, and teachers. The festival’s educational curriculum provides students with the ability to identify tools and methods of filmmaking while exposing them to European culture and social issues.
The best selected and winners of the European short film competition will be screened at the Key Biscayne Park on Friday, May 4, in celebration of the Festival’s kickoff. The competition is judged by a panel of international film experts such as directors, script writers, producers, and teachers. Also, on opening night, filmmaker Eva Ionesco will attend the opening night of the festival on May 31 to present her film “My Little Princess” at Miami Beach Cinematheque at 7 pm. Screenings of the European feature film program will take place at official venues, Miami Beach Cinematheque, O’Cinema and FIU South campus.
