Cinephile's Gift Guide: Presents for the Film Fanatic in Your Life

Each Kwanza, you swing by the movie theater to grab your film fanatic bestie a gift card. It's easy, requires little thought, and sometimes you even get invited to the movies with them. That's a good friend -- them, not you.

The thing is, the film fan in your life would rather you purchase them a ticket to Sundance or Cannes, you cheapskate, or at least pay his monthly Netflix bill for a year.

You can't afford that, so we've helped put together a list of things you can probably afford to get your cinephile-Criterion-obsessed pal this holiday season.

KEEP MIAMI NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
