In 2011, the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival will return for the 26th year. All year long the Cinema Paradiso art cinema screens films, but the FLIFF (Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival), which takes place over the course of several weeks in October and November ( October 21 through November 11 ), brings even more films to the cinema. Film enthusiasts can expect to see world films, American independent films, documentaries, shorts, and even children's films. If you've always wanted to attend Hollywood style premieres, this festival will give you that opportunity.
The 2011 Festival
Keep your eye on the official Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival website for up-to-date information on film screenings and other events. This is an incredibly popular festival, so be sure to plan ahead when it comes to plane reservations and choosing accommodations. Fort Lauderdale is known for its fantastic oceanfront Fort Lauderdale vacation rentals. These villas are the perfect complement to a relaxing getaway to Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale is also home to a major international airport that is easy to reach from across the country.
Planning a Visit
If the dates don't work with your schedule for the 2011 Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival, that doesn't mean you have to miss out. Throughout the year there are smaller events held at Cinema Paradiso. For example, in August 2011 a short festival, Caliente Film Festival , featuring the work of Spanish language films, is taking place. No matter what time of year you are planning a trip to Fort Lauderdale you can enjoy independent films.
