The Miami International Film Festival (MIFF) and The Global Film Initiative will present "Global Lens 2006" from September 16-24 at Miami Dade College's Tower Theater in Little Havana. MIFF is one of seventeen institutions in the U.S. chosen to present "Global Lens 2006." The program showcases work "representing the diversity and excellence of cinema from the developing world" from places such as Brazil, Burkina Faso, China, Iran, Israel, Lebanon, Palestine and South Africa. For the first time, the series also includes a program of short films. Each film is screened in its original language and subtitled in English. Since its founding in 2002, Global Lens has presented films to more than 30,000 people in cities across America, and more than 9,000 high school students have attended free screenings. This is the second year in a row that MIFF has been chosen to host the series. [For more information, visit the Miami International Film Festival's website.] [Brian Brooks]
