Even more on the local tip, over recent years the Miami Film Festival has done great work supporting local filmmakers while separating the wheat from the chaff.

This year features the world premiere of Singular, a documentary about Grammy-winning and Miami-born jazz singer Cécile McLorin-Salvant by Dennis Scholl and Marlon Johnson.

McLorin-Salvant will appear at the gorgeous Olympia theater for not only the March 2nd screening put to perform a live set following the premiere. There’s also the World Premiere of Huracán, a film described as “a made-in-Miami psychological thriller set in the demanding world of the professional MMA circuit.” It’s the first film by Miami native Cassius Corrigan.
