We know it’s time. You know it’s time. We’re delighted to announce the Occupy Miami family will convene at-long-last for a day of fun and friendship! Much has changed since the Occupy Movement first took root in Miami in the Fall of 2011. However, our passion and resolve remain the same. Join in the festivities as we share in the successes, failures, and lessons learned over these past few years, as well as swap new ideas on directions forward and strengthening the activist spirit in Miami.

So, come one, come all – for a day of great food, great music, and even better company! Whether you’re a fresh face who has always wanted to get involved or an original Occupier who was there from the beginning, you won’t want to miss this! Bring a dish, a picnic blanket, musical instruments, your ideas, your energy, or just your smile. Like the Occupy Movement itself, this event is what you make it. So, let’s make it one to remember. See you there!

Celebrating Everyday Women With Extraordinary Courage” Theme For Annual Vanessa Baez Memorial Women’s Brunch
The Official Closing Event Of Spoken Soul Festival

Amy Baez organized the first Vanessa Baez Memorial Women’s Brunch in 2004 to celebrate the life and courage of her late sister Vanessa Baez. Vanessa’s ability to remain strong while battling sarcoidosis continues to inspire others today, bringing together everyday women who exhibit extraordinary spirit in the face of adversity. Since the first brunch, VBMWB has become an annual, one-of-a-kind event that offers a day of inspiration, sisterhood, love, and laughter. The Brunch features a live auction, raffle prizes, guest speaker, guest artist, and complimentary swag bags. In honor of this year’s guest speaker Tanya Villanueva Tepper and guest artist Amy Estrela, proceeds of the event will benefit two local organizations that provide arts programs benefitting children with autism. Tepper, who is raising two autistic daughters, is a writer, national speaker, and founding member of the organization, Fiancés and Domestic Partners of 9/11. She appeared in the Peabody Award-winning documentary Project Rebirth and is living proof that tragedy can be transformed into triumph. Amy Estrela of Amy & Jacob Paint has witnessed firsthand how art can positively impact the life of an autistic child, as it has done for her son Jacob. VBMWB is also the official closing event of the Spoken Soul Festival, which supports local women artists.

Soiree to Celebrate Local Award-Winning Film’s Release and International Success

“HazMat”, the Miami-made film that garnered international notoriety in the film festival circuit, celebrates its official release, Tuesday, April 1 from 8 pm – 10 pm at Tarpon Bend Coral Gables, located at 65 Miracle Mile. Winner of “Best Horror Film” at the Berlin Independent Film Festival and Massachusetts Independent Film Festival, “HazMat”, is now available to the public, and its team is ready to indulge in a few libations and delve into a Q & A with horror fans and local film supporters.

April Fool’s Day seems befitting to fête “HazMat”, whose plot revolves around a practical joke gone terribly wrong. For the special event, Tarpon Bend will offer two-for-one-drinks and have their full menu available for those wishing a nosh. “This is a great opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate a film that has represented Miami around the globe. As a filmmaker, one of my main goals has been to exemplify the diversity that this town has shown me”, says writer, producer and director, Lou Simon of White Lotus Productions. The lovely mix of local actors has recently amassed national recognition with lead actors, Norbert Velez and Aniela McGuiness, receiving “Best Actor” and “Best Actress” nominations at Chicago’s Indie Horror Film Festival.

Deemed a “triple threat”, Ms. Simon will also formally announce casting choices for her next feature film, “Agoraphobia”, a supernatural/psychological thriller that will have audiences at the edge of their seat. The Cuban-American filmmaker scouted several locations for “Agoraphobia”, including L.A. and Key West, but ultimately selected the Magic City once again. Currently in pre-production, the film is slated to begin shooting in Miami, June 2014.

“HazMat” is now available for digital download or rent on: Xfinity Comcast, scroll to “HORROR” and select “HazMat SD”; iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/hazmat/id813357180;
