Miami Dade College’s Miami Film Festival is in March (2017), however we attended the pre-Festival unveiling of the 34th edition official poster by Argentinian designer, photographer and graphic artist Juan Gatti, founder of Gatti Studios in Madrid. This event, which also featured Gatti’s most iconic credit sequence designs, “Juan Gatti Work Throughout the Years” was the kickoff for Miami Film Festival’s GEMS, showcasing the season’s finest new cinematic works.
The Opening Night screening of GEMS (October 13, 2016) is “The Rolling Stones Ole’ Ole’: A Trip Across Latin America” with a live performance from Brothers of Others, a Blues, Soul, Rock & Roll rhythm group from Miami, to set the mood.
