Deering hosting ‘Shorts Under the Stars’: Get your tickets now

Looking for a fun outdoor activity? Have you heard of “Shorts Under The Stars”?

The Deering Estate, in partnership with the Miami Short Film Festival, is presenting this popular movie event on Sunday, May 22, 2022.

Attendees are invited to enjoy stunning views (including the sunset!) then pick a spot on the lawn to watch short films. Be sure to bring blankets or lawn chairs – you may even pack a small picnic basket.

Not permitted: pets, large coolers, open flames/candles, balloons and pop-up tents/umbrellas.

Doors open 6 p.m., with the screening scheduled to start at 7 p.m. The Deering Estate is at 16701 SW 72nd Ave.

Once doors are open, guests are invited to enjoy a cocktail hour with cash bar and music. Following the short film, there will also be a filmmaker question and answer session at 8:15 p.m.

Cost is $20. Limited tickets are available and must be purchased online in advance. Organizers say the event is recommended for attendees age 13 and older.
