Estefans attend Miami Film Festival premiere of locally shot drama

MIAMI (WSVN) - Gloria and Emilio Estefan were on hand as a film the two are involved in premiered at the Miami Film Festival, Friday night.

The two attended the screening of “A Change of Heart,” which was shot in Miami. Emilio was a producer for the film, and Gloria co-starred in the drama.

“It was important to Emilio to have the film made here, because you know it’s a lot easier to go somewhere else and get better tax credits and make it easier to make a film,” said Gloria. “He was adamant that it be shot in Miami so we could use local talent.”

“I think Miami is a great place, because it sends a message of a lot of different ethic parts, a lot of people with different tastes and everything. At the end, love is what it takes,” said Emilio.

The film centers around a morally conservative man whose personal views are challenged after a heart transplant.

Gloria plays the main character’s therapist.

The Miami Film Festival runs through Sunday.
