Based on the true story of João Guilherme Estrella, Meu Nome Não É Johnny won the audience award at last years festival, along with the 2009 Cinema Brazil Grand Prize. And for those of you in North Miami, you can shorten your drive time this Friday by going to the Hollywood Beach Bandshell (Johnson Street and the Broadwalk) for an 8 p.m. screening. Same program, two locations. Both cost exactly zero dollars and will be preceded by the short film Seven Lives.
The festival continues until June 13 so be sure to check the website for more showings.
