First things first, Miami Dade College’s Miami International Film Festival starts tomorrow and tickets to all the films are available here, on MIamiFF’s website. The festival kicks off with the Patron Opening Night Party at Freedom Tower and segues into sexier fare like the Hot Girls Wanted party at the EDITION following the screening of the Sundance favorite that just happens to have been filmed in MIami.
Other events we’re excited about include the Standard Affair party at The Standard and the Patron XO Igloo Cafe event at the Alfred Dupont building downtown. Our picks for must-see festival films include Sweet Mickey for President, a documentary about Pras Michael and Wyclef Jean competing in Haiti’s presidential race, Iris, a documentary about Iris Apfel, as famous for her design as her big round glasses, and Marshland, an 80s-era flick from Spain perfect for True Detective fans.
The Bass Museum’s Annual Night at the Museum is coming up on March 11th. The dress code is Film Noir and the people.. well… that’ll make for one hip party. Chaired up by Chriselda Breene, Diane Lieberman and Soledad Picon, and a host committee list that just won’t quit with names like Dana Shear, Ashley Turchin and Christina Getty and John Lin, you know it’s going to be good. If that’s not enough convincing consider the fashion, art, drinks by GREY GOOSE and cuisine by STK and Oolite. Buy tickets here.
On March 16th A Night Under the Stars will be raising funds to benefit Broadway Cares Equity/Fights Aids. That means the party is going to be fierce. Imagine a performance by the entire touring company of Wicked, a swim wear show styled by Danny Santiago debuting Red Carter’s new swim line, Bogart & Tracy. The organization began in 1994, and supports the South Florida community by providing annual grants to nine AIDS service organizations and an extra 16 across Florida. In addition to the show, there will be light bites, and bottomless Beso Del Sol Sangria. Buy tickets here.
