Celebrating the Very Best of Local Independent Pursuits
Local filmmakers see potential in South Florida to become a respected filmmaking center in it’s own right
In Virginia Woolf’s era, a women needed, “money and a room of her own,” to create fiction and become a storyteller in her own right.
A “room of one’s own,” that much desired space and freedom to create, to express a narrative that’s uniquely yours, for women, and for really, anyone, has expanded through technology, and beyond imaginations, to allow anyone with a laptop and the right software to tell their stories, whether it be through writing, through music or through film.
Presented by Indie Film Club Miami, I’m Not Gonna Move to L.A gives 5 filmmakers a chance to promote their works in progress and compete for a $1,000 rental package from CineVideoTech, a package that’s “battle-tested to create the perfect arsenal” for independent filmmakers of all stripes.
Inspired by the robust film industry in Toronto where she grew up, an industry that creates jobs and hosts film festivals that are renowned throughout the world, Alexander sees potential in South Florida to become a respected filmmaking center in it’s own right.
With that inspiration, Indie Film Club Miami seeks to be an incubator for independent filmmakers, or as Alexander explains it, an organization “to give [filmmakers] a voice, assist them with their production and promote their films. Maybe we will be able to attract the support of investors, and the government, to help prevent a heart braking loss of talent and to create a sustainable all-around industry.”
Tickets are on sale now, (and sell out quickly!), for I’m Not Gonna Move to L.A , Wednesday, August 8th. Enjoy an all-female band, a female chef offering delectable treats and support the dreams of 5 female filmmakers as they create a cinematic “room of one’s own at O Cinema, Miami’s premiere non-profit cinema art house.
