Third Horizon Film Festival

This year’s Third Horizon Film Festival takes place at the Little Haiti Cultural Center less than three miles from Elysee from February 6-9, 2020. Third Horizon Film Festival was founded in 2014 as a Caribbean film festival and staged in partnership with Caribbean Film Academy, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit whose core mission is to support and distribute the work of Caribbean filmmakers.

MovieMaker recently listed it as one of the “25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World 2019,” which also included another Miami festival: Borscht Film Festival.

Third Horizon’s annual festival promotes the new generation of Caribbean filmmakers and screens rich, nuanced stories from this diverse region, which has historically served as a convergence point for the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia.

This year’s movie line-up has yet to be released but is perfectly described as “urgent new cinema from the Caribbean, its diaspora and beyond,” all of which explore the Caribbean beyond the boundaries of tourist brochures and all-inclusive resorts.

Passes to this niche local film festival start at $150 and include full access to an entire weekend of film, a visual art exhibition at Iris PhotoCollective and every Third Horizon party.
