South Florida’s film industry is about to get a huge boost. Welcome to SOBEFiLM and the SOBEFiLM/FEST 2019! 
There are a multitude of opportunities presenting themselves as the international film industry shifts towards a more collaborative driven production and distribution model.

The general idea is to produce content with stories and visuals that represent the various regions and their native .

South Beach

South Beach is famous for the bright art deco architecture, nightlife and parties, beautiful people and world class hotels, but none of that would be there if it wasn’t for the beach. South Beach’s natural attraction remains the top reason why people from all over the world visit Miami in winter, spring, summer or fall. South Beach is Miami’s most popular beach and a must-see during your visit here. The eclectic neighborhood around South Beach’s free public beach, beginning at Ocean Drive and 5th Street and stretching up to 21st Street and Collins, includes some of the best and most tourist-friendly shopping, dining and people watching in all of Miami. Pick up your touristy T-shirt, pack a towel and sunscreen and head out to South Beach for the day. No matter the season, you’ll see a blend of long time locals, new international transplants and visitors. The beach is always busy and the vibe is quintessential South Beach. It’s party-filled, fun and you’ll almost certainly see small planes overhead with banners advertising parties in the area that night. If you’ve seen the iconic pastel-colored deco lifeguard stands in pictures and movies, this is where you’ll find them. Don’t skip South Beach, the place where Miami’s art deco history, beautiful beaches and popular nightlife come together in just a few blocks.

COLLABORATIVE FILMMAKING

For our inaugural collaborative we are focusing on 6 (six) genres including Comedy, Crime, Documentary, Drama, Experimental and LGBTQ
technology and ideas through panels, premieres, exhibitions, and live performance.

Film Industry Networking

Working together and meeting new colleagues.

The Collab

Join us as we build our coalition.

Comedy is a genre of film in which the main emphasis is on humour. These films are designed to make the audience laugh through amusement and most often work by exaggerating characteristics for humorous effect.

Films in this style traditionally have a happy ending (black comedy being an exception). One of the oldest genres in film, some of the very first silent movies were comedies, as slapstick comedy often relies on visual depictions, without requiring sound. When sound films became more prevalent during the 1920s, comedy films took another swing, as laughter could result from burlesque situations but also dialogue. Comedy, compared with other film genres, puts much more focus on individual stars, with many former stand-up comics transitioning to the film industry due to their popularity.
While many comic films are lighthearted stories with no intent other than to amuse, others contain political or social commentary

Crime films, in the broadest sense, are a cinematic genre inspired by and analogous to the crime fiction literary genre. Films of this genre generally involve various aspects of crime and its detection. Stylistically, the genre may overlap and combine with many other genres, such as drama or gangster film, but also include comedy, and, in turn, is divided into many sub-genres, such as mystery, suspense or noir.

A documentary film is a nonfictional motion picture intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction, education, or maintaining a historical record.
“Documentary” has been described as a “filmmaking practice, a cinematic tradition, and mode of audience reception” that is continually evolving and is without clear boundaries.
Documentary films were originally called ‘actuality’ films and were only a minute or less in length. Over time documentaries have evolved to be longer in length and to include more categories, such as educational, observational, and even ‘docufiction’. Documentaries are also educational and often used in schools to teach various principles. Social media platforms such as YouTube, have allowed documentary films to improve the ways the films are distributed and able to educate and broaden the reach of people who receive the information.

Experimental filmexperimental cinema or avant-garde cinema is a mode of filmmaking that rigorously re-evaluates cinematic conventions and explores non-narrative forms and alternatives to traditional narratives or methods of working. Many experimental films, particularly early ones, relate to arts in other disciplines: painting, dance, literature and poetry, or arise from research and development of new technical resources.

While some experimental films have been distributed through mainstream channels or even made within commercial studios, the vast majority have been produced on very low budgets with a minimal crew or a single person and are either self-financed or supported through small grants.

Experimental filmmakers generally begin as amateurs, and some used experimental films as a springboard into commercial film making or transitioned into academic positions. The aim of experimental filmmaking is usually to render the personal vision of an artist, or to promote interest in new technology rather than to entertain or to generate revenue, as is the case with commercial films.

Movies teach us how to be. We learn morals, ethical lessons, how to interact with others, how to fall in and out of love. And we learn from movies how to view others—and how to view ourselves. This has been truly evident in how film has depicted queer characters from its earliest days as visual medium. We have seen people like us reduced to stereotypes—sometimes based in truth, sometimes played by queer performers eager to find work and express their own identities in front of a camera, for better or for worse. Film has also depicted queer people as villains, victims, heroes, and outcasts. More often than not, films about the LGBT community are made not for those of us within it, but rather viewers who consider themselves a part of the straight world. Film teaches us about empathy, about understanding difference. Many films featuring queer characters have succeeded at that mission, while many others have failed. As with any other marginalized group, it’s tricky to make a movie about the queer community—even if the filmmakers responsible are members of the tribe. There’s a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don’t nature to the audience’s response. Are these characters trying to assimilate into the straight world? Are they too queer? Do they represent the vastly intricate inner lives that make up the LGBT community? Most likely they don’t—just as any other straight character in film cannot possibly stand as an Everyman or Everywoman, representing the entire human experience.
