South Florida Filmmakers Showcase
South Florida has a small but mighty filmmaking community with plenty of interesting and compelling films. Some are students, or beginners while others are seasoned veterans of the industry who just happen to call South Florida HOME.

Total Run Time: 82 minutes
There will be a Q&A with all the Filmmakers/Cast/Crew after the screening.

Double Life
Mellie Parks and Trinity Byonie, 5 minutes, USA
Max, a 22 year old man leads a double life; working in the hypermasculine corporate world in one life yet performing as a drag queen in another, realizing the duality of both existences.

Frag
Christopher Frentzel, 13 minutes, USA
It's a regular night at a local gay bar. That is until a disgruntled war vet sets a grenade on the bar counter, turning his bad day into everyone else's problem.

Myrna’s Secret Spies
Andy Perrott, 27 minutes, USA
In this 6th installment of a series of short "telenovela style" film comedies, we find Myrna pregnant about to have the baby of her deceased husband, Oscur, who was shot at the altar during their wedding by Myrna's arch nemesis Heidi Ho. Heidi was attempting to kill Myrna's Mama who tried to drown Heidi for stealing yet another of Myrna's great loves. The joy of the baby's arrival is quickly dashed when Myrna, her maid Ping and her Mama and Papa discover one of the delivery nurses is an imposter who steals baby Oscur. The madcap rush to find the baby is filled with twists and turns and some deep-seated revelations from the Juana family's past.

Open Dialogue: Generation QueerZ
Freddy Rodriguez, 19 minutes, USA 
Open Dialogues: Gen QueerZ captures the LGBTQ+ narratives of eight South Florida students who are part of Generation Z. The fourth film in the Center’s Open Dialogues series, Gen QueerZ gives voice to students who are among the first generation to be “out” while attending school and living at home. Their stories reflect a diversity of gender identities, cultural backgrounds, and academic studies while exploring allyship, threats, and the dynamics of being out at home with family.

El Reggaetonero
Eddy Moon, 18 minutes, USA 
Minutes before her perfectly planned evening, Lily accidentally summons a genie from a vinyl record. The fairy-godmother-like Reggaetonero is convinced he can help her woo her date, but Lily is skeptical about his methods.
