Ten days, 117 feature-length films.
That’s right, the Miami International Film Festival has released the lineup for the much-anticipated event at the end of the month.
And, in its 30th year, it’s denser than ever.
The Miami Herald noted a few bound-to-be favorites:
The celebration will open with Twenty Feet from Stardom, a documentary celebrating the unknown backup singers who traditionally cede the spotlight to more famous musicians (including Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Stevie Wonder and Mick Jagger, all of whom appear in the film).
Closing night brings Venus and Serena, a film about the tennis champion Williams sisters shot over the course of 2011, when they both struggled with health issues that threatened their sports careers.
Sprinkled between them, besides dozens of other films, are 12 world premiers, galas and master class seminars.
Be sure to check out the full schedule, because tickets for the general public go on sale Friday.
