There's a reimagining of the local independent film industry here in Miami Beach, Miami and throughout South Florida. The institutions are changing, the players are changing and the old rules are being tossed aside to make room for new ones.
South Beach is already one of the most premier locations in the world, but even with the gorgeous weather, the beautiful beaches, the world-class nightlife and the diverse cast of characters that inhabit the region, there remains a majorly underdeveloped industry ripe for fresh faced entrepreneurs, equipped with the correct knowledge, to plant their flags and reinvent the "wheel."
I love the excitement of South Beach, that's what makes it such a great destination for indie filmmakers, but I also love the feeling of being tucked away in my own little corner until I'm ready to come out and play.
Famed fashion designer and founder of the internationally famed Italian luxury brand, Versace, Gianna Versace loved South Beach. So much so that he lived in the heart of the action right on Ocean Drive.
Organized as a collaborative effort, SOBEFiLM exists to provide independent filmmakers here in the South Beach community of Miami Beach alongside visual artists throughout South Florida with the resources necessary to fully develop Indie film, television and digital media projects from inception to distribution.
