    Chroma Art Film Festival is a bright and incredibly cool festival in one of the best museums in Miami. Excellent technique, non-standard approach to the display and exposition of the exhibition space. We liked that the curators and organizers selected video works and showed installations and sculptures as well. Thanks!
