Top brass at the Miami International Film Festival (MiamiFF) have organised a mid-season festival to celebrate the re-opening of the Tower Theater.

The four-day MIFFecito will run from October 16-19 exclusively at the Tower Theater.

The event will feature eight to 10 red carpet premieres accompanied by celebrity and film-maker appearances, parties and “additional social events.” Organisers will announce the programme in early September.     

The venue was close for several months for renovation works and now boasts 4K digital capabilities.

“Following the overwhelming success of our 31st annual edition this past March, common refrains from Miami movie-lovers were laments about the long wait until next year’s Miami International Film Festival,” said MiamiFF executive director Jaie Laplante.

“Just as Miami’s beloved cafecito culture is an enduring part of life in the Magic City, so too will MIFFecito provide the perfect teaser taste to next year’s 32nd edition running March 6-15, 2015.”n
