XV Cinema Italy Miami will take over the classic Colony Theatre with ten award-winning films, including In Guerra per Amore and I Babysitter. And if you don’t speak the language, the English subtitles will say it all. A rooftop opening cocktail will take place at the Gale Hotel, and the closing party will happen at Cibo Wine. The fest will give you a chance to explore Italy and South Beach and enjoy how and with whom the two intersect. Friday through Tuesday at the Colony Theatre, 1040 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach; cinemaitaly.com. Tickets cost $12.
