Third Horizon Film Festival

90 NW 29th Street
Miami, FL 33101


The third annual Third Horizon Film Festival (THFF) returns to Miami September 27-30, 2018, with a line-up of urgent new cinema from the Caribbean, its diaspora and beyond.

As we continue to find ourselves in an era where a hegemonic establishment seeks to shore itself up to the exclusion of minority communities worldwide, never has it been more necessary to foreground independent filmmaking voices that are unafraid to do what cinema, at its radical and resisting best, does so well: speak truth to power. And so in curating this year’s THFF, we have made a determined effort—more than is usual—to have the program reflect the idea of cinema as a socially and politically disruptive tool, both in terms of form and content.

The result is a compellingly diverse lineup of films—features, shorts and mid-length works; fiction, documentary and hybrids of both—by a variety of filmmakers unapologetically looking to, as the Haitian writer Edwidge Danticat put it, create dangerously. (Or as another Caribbean artist sang: “I want to disturb my neighbor.”) These are films unafraid to discommode and discomfit, to challenge and subvert, in often unusual and exciting ways. We invite you to join us for an unforgettable weekend of engagement with the best films by the Caribbean’s most cutting-edge moving-image artists.
