GEMS Festival Preview

The Miami International Film Festival’s fall event, held at Tower Theater in Little Havana, is almost here! GEMS recently announced its line up and the Mochees are excited. This week we went to a screening of all 14 films showing at GEMS this October – just wow.

The line-up includes features from Cannes, Berlin & Sundance Film Festivals, and a few films expected to receive Oscar noms, all while maintaining the international flavor typical of GEMS.

So which are our most anticipated films?

Brooklyn – Based on the novel by Colm Toibin and starring Saoirse Ronan, this romantic story is set in the 1950s between Ireland and Brooklyn.

Yona – Telling the true story of Israeli poet Yona Wallach, who entered into the literary scene determined to live her work, this movie is an emotionally charged drama.

It’s Now or Never – The biggest box office hit of the year in Spain, wedding plans go wrong in this hysterical romantic comedy.

We’ll be posting previews of the films on all platforms in the upcoming weeks. Follow MIFF on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date!
