Event Details

Film Festival DON’Ts by William Vela

Working as a TV producer for more than ten years, William Vela, today's Executive Director of the Miami Short Film Festival, decided to produce a short film called 360˚with film director Eric Rubalcava and used 30 of his actors/actresses friends to shoot this film. Six months later the film was completed, and in an attempt to show the movie to all of the actors involved in the process, he rented a space plus a projector and some fifty chairs to accommodate the cast. However, the word spread and more directors and producers came to ask if he would also showcase their films. The total of seventeen short films were collected and shown to three hundred and ten guests and the Miami Short Film Festival was born.
