Miami Dade Collegeâ€™s Miami Film Festival, the only major film festival worldwide produced by a college or university is presenting GEMS 2016, the annual four-day fall film event taking place October 13-16, 2016. A precursor to the 34th annual Festival event in March 2017, Miami Film Festivalâ€™s GEMS continues to deliver quality films that inspire, provoke, and entertain, allowing the South Florida community to immerse themselves in a cinematic ride that will take them to unexpected places.
To kickoff of the festival on a high note, GEMS will open with the Florida premiere of the much anticipated documentary The Rolling Stones OlÃ© OlÃ© OlÃ©: A Trip Across Latin America. It follows the rock giants on a road trip in early 2016 as they tour South America for the first time in over a decade. The film focuses especially on the dramatic lead up to their history-making final stop in Havana, Cuba. Opening night festivities include a â€œRolling Stonesâ€™â€ party with music, food and drinks. #GEMSFF #MiamiFF @MiamiFilmFest @TowerTheaterMIA
