We are the Night (Wir Sind Die Nacht) — a sexy, suspenseful and adrenaline-pumping vampire film — will make its Southeast premiere at a fundraiser for the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (MGLFF) produced by Icandee Events on Sunday, Sept. 4, at the Stage, 170 NE 38 St. in Miami’s Design District.
This edgy tale of a provocative gang of female vampires, who are living large, making their own rules, and leaving a merciless trail of blood in their wake, was a multi-award winner at the 61st Deutscher Filmpreis (German Film Awards) held last April in Berlin.
“Women’s films are an important part of the mix of the festival,” said Franc Castro, executive director of the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. “We are truly excited to be partnering with Icandee to showcase this toothsome tale of Twilight meets The L Word.”
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception from 8 to 9 p.m. where fellow “indie” and vampire film fans will enjoy appetizers and drinks before the film screening. After the film, guests can stay to enjoy more girl power and debauchery at the after party with music by deejays Run Sevim Run and Bonnie Beats, plus gyrating by sinfully sexy vampire dancers.
“The MGLFF is an important part of our community,” said producer Lynn Bové. “I wanted to produce a night that would not only be sexy and tantalizing but also raise money and awareness for the festival. Of course, choosing a female vampire film was a clear choice.”
The $20 tickets include cocktail reception with a complimentary drink and appetizers, film and admission to the after party.
Tickets are available online at www.mglff.com or by phone at 1-877-484-8499.
The MGLFF is a critically acclaimed event, now in its 14th year, held throughout South Florida in the world-renowned historic South Beach district and throughout Miami-Dade County. The MGLFF is celebrated for its program of feature films, documentaries and short films by, about and of interest to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and and transgender (GLBT) communities.
