“We Are The Night” – “Wir Sind Die Nacht”
Screening and After Party Fundraiser for the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival
Sunday, Sept 4, 2011
MIAMI — AUGUST 10, 2011 – “We are the Night” (“Wir Sind Die Nacht”), a sexy, suspenseful and adrenaline-pumping vampire film will make its Southeast Regional premiere at a fundraiser for the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (MDGLFF) produced by Icandee Events on Sunday, September 4, at one of Miami’s most talked-about venues, the Stage in the 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 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 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 DJs Run Sevim Run and Bonnie Beats, plus gyrating by sinfully sexy vampire dancers.
“The MGLFF is an important part of our community. 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,” says Producer Lynn Bové.
$20 tickets include cocktail reception with a complimentary drink and appetizers, film and admission to the after party.
Cocktail Reception: 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
