About Film Festival and Gems 2016
Miami Dade College’s Miami Film Festival, the only major film festival worldwide produced by a college or university is presenting GEMS 2016, the annual four-day fall film event taking place October 13-16, 2016. A precursor to the 34th annual Festival event in March 2017, Miami Film Festival’s GEMS continues to deliver quality films that inspire, provoke, and entertain, allowing the South Florida community to immerse themselves in a cinematic ride that will take them to unexpected places.
About Opening Night Film
To kickoff of the festival on a high note, GEMS will open with the Florida premiere of the much anticipated documentary The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé: A Trip Across Latin America. It follows the rock giants on a road trip in early 2016 as they tour South America for the first time in over a decade. The film focuses especially on the dramatic lead up to their history-making final stop in Havana, Cuba. Opening night festivities include a “Rolling Stones’” party with music, food and drinks.
