It’s that time of year again…

where we recover from our Halloween candy comas and prepare for a mild Miami holiday season– but long before we even think about wrapping up presents, we must wrap up a year of amazing local talent with the last I’M NOT GONNA MOVE TO L.A. of 2014.

On November 5th, Indie Film Club Miami invites all of South Florida’s fabulous creatives to the last I’M NOT GONNA MOVE TO L.A. of the year. Enjoy local music, comedy, films, and find out which director will be the final audience winner of 2014.
