Founded in 2015, Mindie - Miami Independent Film Festival is an ongoing film festival that works on two different levels: monthly competition and annual event. The monthly edition give continuity to the selection process and a steady feedback to the filmmakers. Instead of waiting for months before getting an answer from the festival, filmmakers are immediately contacted if selected. Their work is privately screened and evaluated by a jury of industry professionals.
Every month, the jury selects winners from each category. The monthly winners will then compete to be screened at our annual event. The event aims to create a strong relationship between filmmakers, producers and distributors from all over the world.
WHAT’S NEW THIS YEAR:
This year we received 1,061 films from 64 countries. All 1,061 films were evaluated on their overall quality, production value, development of the story and cinematography. We then selected 92 Monthly Winners and among these winners we selected 1 Feature Narrative, 1 Feature Documentary, 11 short films, 4 student films to be screened at the Cinematheque (during the 3-day Mindie Film Festival). Festival goers can also enjoy the photography exhibition "I've already seen it somewhere", a collection of photographs of actual film locations coupled with the scenes from New York based films. Artist Davide Fiore will also be present during the festival. The exhibition will be held in the gallery of the Miami Beach Cinematheque for the month of July
