A Queer Art Film Series
LGBT art and film meet in the back garden of Superfine! The Fair at the heart of Midtown Miami this December.
Join 250+ art-lovers and cinephiles in the back garden of Superfine! The Fair for a 60 minute series of short films poised directly at the intersection of LGBT themes and the contemporary art world. Curated and presented by South Florida's own OUTshine Film Festival (formerly MiFo), you'll enjoy a welcome addition to Miami Art Week's generally LGBT-lacking schedule. With a constant commitment to spotlighting LGBT artists, Superfine! brings a new dimension to our Miami fair through this partnership.
ART.FILM | MOVER + SHAKER Q+A
Between the two film programs, attendees will enjoy a brief Q+A with Superfine! - The Fair director Alex Mitow, OUTshine Film Festival director Victor Gimenez, and Chris Adamo of The New Tropic. Led by Lauren Fairbanks of S+G, the panel will elucidate the merging of film and art, and how each influences the other.

A first-of-its-kind silent LGBTQ film in India, Sisak makes waves before the visuals of this short hit the shore. Set in the fast-paced environs of the usually bustling Mumbai local train system, it details a romance that develops slowly and intoxicatingly, nestled in the silences and quiet comforts of the end-of-day train journeys.

Directed By: Blair Fukumura
Canada, 5:30 mins
