Third Horizon Film Festival

Sep 27, 2018 to Sep 30, 2018 - at 12:00 AM - English

As we continue to find ourselves in an era where a hegemonic establishment seeks to shore itself up to the exclusion of minority communities worldwide, never has it been more necessary to foreground independent filmmaking voices that are unafraid to do what cinema, at its radical and resisting best, does so well: speak truth to power. And so in curating this year’s THFF, the curators made a determined effort—more than is usual—to have the program reflect the idea of cinema as a socially and politically disruptive tool, both in terms of form and content.

The result is a compellingly diverse line-up of films—features, shorts and mid-length works; fiction, documentary and hybrids of both—by a variety of filmmakers unapologetically looking to, as the Haitian writer Edwidge Danticat put it, "create dangerously" (or as another Caribbean artist sang: “I want to disturb my neighbor”). These are films not afraid to discommode and discomfit, to challenge and subvert, in often unusual and exciting ways. We invite you to join us for an unforgettable weekend of engagement with the best films by the Caribbean’s most cutting-edge moving-image artists.

Locations

Third Horizon Film Festival opens on Sept 27 at Perez Art Museum Miami with the film Black Mother and an after-party on the museum terrace before moving to O Cinema Wynwood from Sept 28 thru 30th.

Studio 54

Thursday, Oct 18, 2018 at 7:00 PM - English

Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism – a place that redefined what a nightclub could be but also came to symbolize an entire era. Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell came out of nowhere to preside over a new kind of New York society. With unprecedented access to Schrager, who tells the whole unvarnished story for the first time, and a treasure-trove of rare footage, director Matt Tyrnauer constructs a vivid, glorious portrait of a disco-era phenomenon and tells the story of two friends who stuck together through an incredible series of highs and lows.

Thanks to the irreverent and surreal Wild Nights With Emily you will never look at Dickinson or her poetry the same way again.
