Culturally speaking, Miami keeps getting better. More people are checking out more events, and the latter seem to get more creative as well. For instance, the inaugural ScreenDance Miami Film Festival, produced by Tigertail Productions, running Thursday through Sunday. Intended to highlight the work of local choreographers and dancers, this innovative event will include works and panelists from farther afield, such as a series of three films on opening night at the Miami Beach Cinematheque (1130 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) at 7:00 p.m. for $12. Another Building, created by Curaçao choreographer and filmmaker Gabri Christa, is comprised of three works located in historically important Dutch buildings, with music and dance from the likes of Living Colour’s Vernon Reid and the spectacular hip-hop choreographer Kyle Abraham. Other films to be screened -- all at 8:00 p.m. -- were chosen through a submission and invite process, and selected by the festival director, Marissa Alma Nick. They include shorts from locals Dinorah Jesus Rodriguez, Pioneer Winter, Octavio Campos, Carlota Pradera, Rosie Herrera and Juan Carlos Zaldivar, which will show at the alternative dance space Inkub8 (2021 N.W. 1st Pl., Miami) along with workshops and panel discussions for the rest of the festival. Another Building will be re-screened at Inkub8 on Sunday. General admission is $10; for full information on times and events, visit tigertail.org.
