Last Updated: April 14, 2017By Tags: ,

Monica Bellucci, Iciar Bollaín, Gavin Hood and Deepa Mehta will all receive tributes in a new Marquee Series to be presented at the 33rd edition of the Miami Dade College’s Miami International Film Festival that will take place during March 4-13 as was announced yesterday. Additionally, Andrew Currie’s comedy THE STEPS, starring James Brolin, will have its U.S. premiere during fest’s closing night. What’s notable about Miami is that it is the only international film festival worldwide entirely produced by a college or university.

(from the press release) “This year’s lineup is like a prism that invites Miami to see the world with an illumination that only the cinema, and the artists that create the work, can provide,” says fest’s Executive Director and Director of Programming, Jaie Laplante. “The programmers have populated the program with films and events that are essential to the complex, dynamic, ever-changing Miami of the now.“
