Knight Foundation sponsors the grand jury prizes for the festival, which is produced and presented by Miami Dade College. "These prizes help place the festival – and Miami's growing film scene – on the world stage," said Dennis Scholl, vice president/arts and Miami program director for Knight Foundation, which has supported the festival since 2006. "For South Floridians, the arts are also one way to bring our diverse community together. Films spark dialogue, transport us and move us, creating the common cultural experiences that make great cities." "The Knight Foundation awards continue to be the bedrock of our ability to attract high-quality North American and U.S. premieres to Miami," said festival executive director Jaie Laplante. "We are fortunate to have the continued support of the foundation, and an invitation to the three Knight Foundation competitions continues to be highly-sought among international and domestic filmmakers."

Knight Foundation25,000.006--Communities, Arts Grant period: 04/01/2011 - 04/30/2012; goal: To produce a special exhibition of Secretary Madeleine Albright's personal collection of jewelry used as part of U.S. diplomacy and now open to the community "Read My Pins" in the Freedom Tower includes a snake Albright began wearing because Iraqi news media called her a "serpent" for attacking Saddam Hussein, Miami New Times reported. It was that gesture that started her on using her jewelry for something more than decoration. Albright used another pin, a bluebird with diamonds and rubies, after Cuban planes shot down one flown by the Miami-based exile group Brothers to the Rescue. She placed the pin so the bird's head was down in mourning. The exhibit is sponsored by Miami Dade College. When Albright visited it Wednesday for an opening reception she made another kind of statement, with a gold brooch given her years ago by the college president, Eduardo Padron, The Miami Herald said. "I might wear a turtle because it has been slow for the Cuban people," Albright responded when asked what pin she would wear to show support for the country now.
