For the third year in a row, Gems is giving local cinephiles a long weekend of premiere screenings. Taking place at the Tower Theater in Little Havana, Gems is like a mini film festival, featuring guests, awards, and parties. This year, it opens with The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé: A Trip Across Latin America, a movie about the British band’s tour through Latin America, which was capped off with an historic free show in Cuba. Afterward, audiences can attend a Rolling Stones-themed party with music, food, and drinks. The Gems program also includes prestige films, such as UK director Ken Loach’s Cannes Palme d’Or winner I, Daniel Blake and the latest from that indie darling from North Miami, Kelly Reichardt, Certain Women. The festival also includes U.S. premieres like Spain’s 2016 box office hit Kiki, Love to Love and Argentina’s Inseparables, a reimagining of the 2011 Oscar-nominated French film The Intouchables. The film’s director, Marcos Carnevale, will be present to receive this year’s Precious Gem Award. Miami Film Festival Gems 2016 will take place Thursday through Sunday at MDC’s Tower Theater (1508 SW Eighth St., Miami). Tickets to film screenings cost $13 plus fees.
