Miami Short Film Festival runs Nov. 17-23

Jaie Laplante, formerly of the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, wrote to me about the upcoming Miami Short Film Festival. From Jaie:

Diva

I wanted to let you in on a project of mine.  I have been working on the 2008 Miami Short Film Festival, I programmed the festival this year and one of the programs I put together was a first for the 7-year-old festival - their first evening of gay & lesbian short films!

Entitled "Hit the High Notes", the screening takes place on Wednesday, November 19th at the Tower Theater.  The program includes a documentary about a Havana transvestite, "Tacones Cercanos" from Cuba, a "sock opera" from Canada entitled "The Perfect Match", "Diva" from France, "Sin decir nada" from Columbia, local filmmaker Christina derHagopian's "Me as He", and U.S. films "Bloom" and "Thirteen or so Minutes".  I've attached a few pictures below.
