Cinema in Paradise Appeals to Starving Artists

Miami’s Homestead Main Street will host its first film festival, Cinema in Paradise, on Friday, March 7 and Saturday, March 8. The deadline for entries is Feb. 3.

The all-animation fest is produced by Imagine That MultiMedia and will feature computer, stop motion, clay and cell animation. It will run for two days, incorporating both Homestead Main Street’s usual Friday Fest and ArtSouth’s 2nd Saturday.

Friday, March 7th, is family night. Toons will be screened under the stars in Losner Park in the center of historic Homestead. This outdoor cinema comes complete with popcorn, sodas and old time concession-stand fixings.

Saturday, March 8, is reserved for films with a more adult-oriented, avant- quality. Movie treats of wine and cheese will be offered between film viewings. Show times are to be announced.

With an entrance fee of only $13, this juried festival prides itself on being artist centered and open to filmmakers of all varieties. To register or to get information on how to submit a film, go to www.Animationfest.com.
