We’ve written about this amazing event since it’s inception 39 years ago. 

Is that possible? Yep, we have and every year it gets bigger and better. This year was no exception.  There’s the Film Festival and additionally there are the satellite events that have become legendary. 

The opening night party took place at the historic Alfred I. DuPont Building in downtown Miami.  The theme…a Walter Mercado extravaganza.  Walter would have been proud.  I got to meet Walter on several occasions.  Every time, I saw him at his downtown apartment lobby, I’d slow down as I passed him and say… “te leo y te creo”.  He always smiled.

Hundreds of party lovers arrived to East Flagler Street, (across from the Olympia Theatre) after The Good Boss opening night feature to celebrate and rock the night away.  And rock they did. Yummy drinks galore.  Delicious bites offered by Shake Shack, Divieto Ristorante, Bulla Gastrobar, Pisco y Nazca and The Lazy Oyster.  Estrella Damm.  We sipped.  We tasted. We met interesting film lovers who were enjoying E11even Vodka, Miami Club Rum and Volley Tequila Seltzer.  Guests also enjoyed a ‘mocktail’ prepared by Ghia and Olipop Soda. LaCroix provided Sparkling Water while party goers danced and danced.

The Festival runs from March 3- March 13, 2022.  For tickets and additional information go to www.miamifilmfestival.com
