Although Miami Dade College (MDC) wont be blowing out 450 candles to celebrate William Shakespeares birthday, it will be hosting a Shakespearean summer film fest to highlight the revered writers life and ongoing influence. Shakespeare and Snacks: Summer Film Festival will run every Wednesday at noon May 21 through July 16, in Room R8401 at MDCs Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami.
In conjunction with the MDC Learning Resources department, the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor, and the Board of County Commissioners, MDC will be screening the movie adaptations of some of the Bards greatest plays, supplemented with A Shot of Shakespeare – short clips featuring historic videos reflecting the influence of Shakespeares life, works, and times on South Florida.
Selected from the millions of feet of film and thousands of hours of video tape, A Shot of Shakespeare will showcase only-in-Miami stories ranging from all-star productions of classic plays to auditions by dogs ready to roll over and play Shakespeare.

06/11 Much Ado about Nothing
06/18 Julius Caesar
07/02 Titus Andronicus
