GOING DOWN IN LA-LA LAND Sponsor: Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival Based on the novel by Andy Zeffer, “Going Down in LA-LA Land” is a riveting and uncensored look at Hollywood. It is a story that reveals how friendships sustain us and keep us going. It is a tale that reflects our celebrity-obsessed culture. It is a revealing look at some people’s desire to be loved, adored, and adulated at any cost. Readers have grown to adore the flawed and imperfect, yet earnest and likable characters of Adam and Candy. Now movie audiences will have the same opportunity to follow their rocky ride through Hollywood, and all the laughs that go along with it. Sunday, May 1, 2011 6:30pm Colony Theatre.

ROMANCE IN A CAN 2011 Sponsor: Red Chemistry Executive Director Isabelle Lambert’s vision to offer films without violence developed into an unprecedented film festival – Romance in a Can – entering its fifth year. “After a decade of translating and editing French crime novels and scriptwriting for thrillers, I wanted to create a themed film festival about love,” Lambert says. Romance in a Can film festival promotes the work of independent filmmakers from the European film market. Its strategy is to attract a US and Hispanic audience interested in European culture and life styles by experiencing the art of film making.

MIAMI INTERNATIONAL PIANO FESTIVAL Sponsor: Miami International Piano Festival “The need for such a festival is incontrovertible. To have a showcase festival specially dedicated to new artists is not just an act of faith but a beacon of hope for the next generation that renewal has not been ruled out. In the context of the United States, the significance of such a festival is multiplied many times over. The value of an independent festival introducing the cream of the world’s new pianists to the United States cannot therefore be overestimated.” – Norman Lebrecht on the Miami International Piano Festival.
