The Cinematic Arts Residents were chosen by a national jury of film experts because of their extensive experience making short films, their authorship of projects that center on Miami stories, and because their proposed projects embrace the ethos of microbudget filmmaking: the idea that creative stories can be brought to the screen with a lean and inventive approach to production.
Humes will use the residency to expand her much-celebrated short film “LIBERTY,” focused on Miami’s Liberty Square housing complex, into a feature narrative film. Learn more.
Jean will tell a story, inspired by his mother’s first years in Miami, that centers on an underpaid nursing assistant’s effort to send money home to her family in Haiti while navigating Miami’s problematic, private care-taking world. Learn more.
