Miami International Film Festival & Hispanicize to Host Night of Film at Gusman Center
Hispanicize 2014 is partnering with Miami International Film Festival (MIFF) to host its biggest night of film April 1 at South Florida’s most historic movie theater, the 1920s era Olympia Theater at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts. This is the second year in a row that Hispanicize and MIFF are joining forces to help promote the works of U.S. Latino filmmakers.
“We’re honored to continue this great partnership with MIFF and to be able to tell our Hispanicize 2014 attendees that this year we’re going to take them to the movies to the Gusman Center, a cultural crown jewel of South Florida and one of the most majestic movie houses in the country”

“Hispanicize has done a great job of highlighting the cultural contributions Latinos are making to culture and entertainment,” said Jaie Laplante, executive director of MIFF. “We’re proud to be uniting forces and audiences behind our shared love of film.”
The Hispanicize 2014 Red Carpet Night will feature a special night of food, drinks as well as celebrities from a U.S. Latino film that will soon be named. As they did last year with the premiere of “Filly Brown”, Hispanicize 2014 and MIFF are collaborating to bring strong media and social media attention to the film.
Built in 1926, the Olympia Theater at the Gusman Center features an enchanting Mediterranean courtyard with shimmering stars and golden balconies. Majestic turrets and towers suggest another era when performances were events, and grand theaters provided a dreamlike escape from the modern world.
