LGBT Film Festival Features New Name, Leader

The MiFo LGBT Film Festival is coming to Fort Lauderdale, Oct. 9 – 11 and 15-18, with 53 films, including 13 premieres, 28 features, 18 shorts and seven documentaries. But, most importantly the festival marks the debut of a new executive director, Victor M. Gimenez.

Gimenez was hired this summer and is responsible for both the Fort Lauderdale and Miami festivals. A Miami native, Gimenez has been involved as both board chair and volunteer for several years.

“I really enjoy film,” he said in a phone interview.

His first task was to implement the festival’s new branding: MiFo, an amalgamation of the Miami and Fort Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals, and a nod to SoHo in Manhattan, also a major independent film festival.
