June 13, 2021, Palmetto Bay, FL — It was a wonderful turnout for the first live event of the season, June’s Shorts Under the Stars: Amplifying Black Stories, held at the Deering Estate park in Palmetto Bay, on Sunday, June 13th. The event, which was in celebration of Juneteenth, showcased 8 films that highlighted black stories in short filmmaking. Almost 200 people attended the event.
Guests arrived around 5:30pm, giving them time to stroll around the beautiful paths of Deering Estate before making their way to the lawn for the nights’ program. After the show, guests were treated to an impromptu Q&A with two local filmmakers whose films were presented.
