"Keep it Short" as Miami Shorts FF highlights the ultra-short



The Miami Short Film Festival (MsFF) celebrated its Opening Night with incredible fanfare on Monday, November 15, 2010.  There were great expectations and its patrons were once again rewarded with a delightful night of shorts. It was splendid to see the number of patrons who remained for the Q&A that followed the night's screening, featuring Jeffrey Ruggles and Kristen Slaysmen, director and leading lady of Queen's Day.


Tuesday, November 16th was another spectacular night as the audience was treated to a harmonious collision between emotion and information that make short documentaries not only memorable, but also exhilarating. This particular shorts series takes the viewer on a journey from Miami to the heart of Africa, to a Swedish swimming hole and back again.  The star of the night was "Hecho A Mano", a documentary that weaves together the life stories of four Cuban artists now living in Miami; pianist Franciso "Paquito" Hechevarria, a sculptor, Tony Lopez, and twin mosaic artists Nelson and Ronald Curras.  From their beginnings in Cuba to their early experiences in exile, to their everyday lives, the film explores their dedication to craft and their ability to keep creating under often challenging circumstances.  Once again the audience enjoyed a Q&A with local producer director team, Gaspar Gonzalez and Brett O'Bourke.


Also on Tuesday, the Miami short Film Festival was honored to host famed American filmmaker and author, Michael Francis Moore who directed and produced Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11, Sicko, and Capitalism: A Love Story, four of the top nine highest-grossing documentaries of all time.


MsFF's 9th edition program highlights for the remainder of the week include:

-  "Latin Flavor" - the Festival's always popular night of exclusively Hispanic works.

-  "Sexploration" - films dedicated to fetishes, frisky freedoms and first times.

-  And "Humor is in the Eye of the Beholder" - Comedy shorts from around the world.


The Festival's Closing Night will take place on Saturday, November 20th, at the Coral Gables Art Cinema, where award winners in the categories of Best Animation, Best Documentary, Best Experimental, Best Foreign, Best Local Production, Best Narrative, Best Environmental, and (new in 2010) Best Ultra-Short will be announced during the Award Ceremony.   Reserve the dates of this exhilarating and ever-evolving film Festival.  Tickets for the 2010 Miami short Film Festival are on sale now at
