#MiamiFilm Month Video Contest

Calling all Miami filmmakers! The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, in partnership with Cinevisun and Black Film and Media Group (BFMG), invites you to highlight Miami’s multicultural culinary scene for your chance to win the $3,000 grand prize!

SHARE YOUR CULINARY FAVORITES
Create a one to two minute video showcasing Miami’s multicultural culinary scene for your chance to win. Submit your video entry and have your friends and family vote for your entry! A total of three winning videos will be selected. Films will be professionally critiqued by Miami Short Film Festival director, William Vela. The winning film will be featured at the Miami Short Film Festival in November 2016. The top three filmmakers will receive cash prizes.

HAVE SOME CREATIVE FUN
Miami’s a must-try culinary destination. At some of our hottest restaurants and dining spots, the crowd is stunning, the view and atmosphere sets the perfect ‘So Miami’ tone and the cuisine is the show stopper, whether it’s haute cuisine or funky food trucks. But there are also many unfamiliar, undiscovered microcosms of culture and community when dining in Miami. Here, it’s easy to learn something about the world that has a lot to do with what's on your plate.

Show us your favorite dishes and foodie spots that highlight Miami's diverse culinary scene in our heritage neighborhoods, including Little Haiti, Little Havana, Historic Overtown, Coconut Grove’s Village West, Downtown Miami, Wynwood and more. What makes Miami a dining destination for visitors to savor? What are your top cultural dining recommendations for locals wanting to discover new neighborhoods and new adventures?

Once your video is submitted, be sure to spread the word, and encourage your friends and family to vote for your video. It’s all in celebration of June's #MiamiFilm Month.
