The MiFo LGBT Film Festival mission is to entertain, inspire, enrich, and educate, and to connect and encourage a sense of community, all through the powerful medium of film and organically-related educational and social events. Towards this end we showcase international and culturally diverse films, by emerging and established filmmakers, that offer historical and contemporary perspectives on the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender experiences, often as expressed by LGBT filmmakers and portrayed by LGBT actors, and we provide forums for these artists to engage in discussions between themselves and our audiences through diverse educational forums.

MiFo LGBT Film Festival - Miami Edition
The MiFo LGBT Film Festival - Miami Edition provides patrons a high-quality, thought-provoking, and entertaining selection of the newest and best in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender cinema. The wide-ranging array of films is presented each spring during an electric and memorable ten-day span, and includes features, documentaries, and shorts, all culled from the hundreds of submissions received each year from all around the world. The final selections uniquely reflect the changes and growth experienced within the local and international LGBT community, as well as the broader at-large culture. Additionally, our off-screen programming events, which range from panel discussions to Q&A sessions with filmmakers to themed social events to the spectacular closing awards brunch, all serve to organically complement the overall film program and provide the most satisfying and illuminating experience of any LGBT film festival.
MiFo Miami GLOW Screening Series
MiFo's acclaimed GLOW monthly film screening series returns each year in the months leading up to our flagship Miami festival. The carefully-curated selections feature brand-new content that just can't wait until the April festival, as well as the most talked-about screenings from the preceding Fort Lauderdale edition.
