The 30th edition of the Miami International Film Festival, produced and presented by Miami Dade College, will commemorate its anniversary with a 29-day "Countdown Retrospective" film series. The retrospective will consist of screenings at MDC's Tower Theater of one film each consecutive night that represents each festival year, and it will feature special guests such as director David Frankel ("The Devil Wears Prada," "Hope Springs") and filmmaker Bruce Weber ("Let's Get Lost").

MIFF executive director Jaie Laplante said, "What a treat it has been to look through our back catalogues, reliving the excitement of MIFF's great moments, and recharting the growth from the early triumphs of our founding fathers to the new era of our modern festival."

Beginning with a rare 35mm screening of Pedro Almodóvar's "Dark Habits (Entre tinieblas)," the retrospective will kick off Jan. 26. Frankel's "Miami Rhapsody" will screen Feb. 8, one week after Weber's "Let's Get Lost" shows Feb. 1 -- both directors will be in attendance for the screenings of their movies and to answer audience questions. On Feb. 24, Uberto Pasolini's Venice Film Festival winner "Machan" will screen, and there will be a screening of Fernando Trueba, Javier Mariscal and Tono Errando's Goya award winner "Chico & Rita" Feb. 26.

The full line-up of films to be shown in the "Countdown Retrospective" can be found here.
