OUTshine Film Festival

Tuesday, Apr 23, 2019 various times - English

The Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival started in 1998; the Fort Lauderdale Gay & Lesbian Film Festival in 2008. Both were brought together under one brand to become The MiFo LGBT Film Festival in 2015, with a seasonal event serving each city. Critically and internationally acclaimed, it serves as a platform for numerous premiers and is the largest LGBT cultural arts event in South Florida.

Because of its increasing popularity and success, MiFo has been rechristened to the OUTSHINE Film Festival, underscoring its brightness, broad appeal and dynamic multi-cultural location. Outshine is everything you want in a film festival... inviting, glowing, and eclipsing all others before it. Our mission is to inspire, entertain, and educate; encouraging a sense of community through international and culturally diverse film, video, and other media that offer historical and contemporary perspectives on the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience.

OUTrageous. OUTspoken. And OUTstanding in what we deliver. Join us in 2019 for our 21st Annual Miami Edition, April 18-28 and 11th Annual Fort Lauderdale Edition, October 10-20.

A few things about Blue Martini. It is a very sophisticated, high-end club with plenty of room, good food, beautiful waitresses, and very nice accommodations. It is a great place to bring a special date or hang out with a group of friends. You can sit in many different areas all with a view of the stage and excellent sound. You can grab a "front row seat" or sit at a distance away where you can listen and talk with your friends. However, please remember that is is a 21 and over club!
