What’s happening in your neighborhood? The Block is giving Miami filmmakers and storytellers a total of $32,000 to create a short documentary about Miami’s neighborhoods.
Congrats to our five finalists, who on May 18th pitched their ideas to a jury of local and nationally-recognized film professionals and a live studio audience. Check out the winners below!
The finalists will have access to the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archive. The top three award recipients also will get help making their films from the University of Miami School of Communication’s Department of Cinema and Interactive Media.
In addition, these filmmakers also received a special jury mention for their submissions and will receive $1,000 for their projects: Daniel Rivero, Vanessa Charlot, Nicole Martinez, Alicia Edwards, Nadia Tahoun and Matthew Abad.
Thank you to the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Family Foundation for having generously provided lead funding for this program.
