“The Freedom Tower is a marvel for what it symbolizes to so many.” These words — inscribed within the walls of Miami’s iconic Freedom Tower — perfectly summarize the enduring appeal of one of Miami’s most distinctive symbols. And what a perfect host venue for our Giant Freedom Party, this year’s iteration of our annual Awards Night Gala, to celebrate the you-saw-it-here first screening of Gigantes, Spain’s next giant “Spanish series” worldwide hit — with star Carlos “Nene” Librado in person!

Toasting the giants of Spain’s film world is just the beginning. Thanks to Spanish beer giant Estrella Damm of Barcelona and Spanish wine giant Marqués de Riscal of the “City of Wine” in the Basque Country of northern Spain, the libations of this Awards Night Gala will inspire the sensations of the Iberian peninsula just the way the architects of the Freedom Tower were inspired by the famous Giralda Tower in Seville, Spain! And can we talk food? The uniquely crafted, scrumptious delights of Spanish-themed cuisine will power this spectacular extravaganza. Earthy sips of Botran Aged Rum from the New World will add even more boom to the box.

Music plays an important role at this party — and we’ve cleared the dance floor just for you with PALO!, the Grammy-nominated Afro-Cuban Funk band! We’ll toast many of the newly minted award winners of the 36th edition and all of the artists and filmmakers of the 36th edition — and also announce the first-ever winner of our newest award, the Alacran Music in Film Award for the best musical score of this year’s Festival. Downtown Miami will be lit on this night: Begin your evening with Gigantes at Olympia Theater, the Giant Freedom Party at Freedom Tower, and for those with the artistic stamina to go the distance, hop across Museum Park for PAMM’s Late Night REMIX with our special Three-in-One Package pricing!
