The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLiFF) is a 501(3)c not-for-profit organization dedicated to introducing American Independent films, world cinema and film talent to the South Florida community and through annual satellite festivals in St Augustine, Daytona Beach and Grand Bahama Island. Established in 1986, FLiFF is one of Broward County's major cultural institutions and one of the original members of the Florida Cultural Institution program (aka Florida’s Finest). FLiFF has been awarded four major grants by The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences and is recognized as the world’s longest film festival by Guiness World Records.
FLiFF also programs and operates the popular year-round art-house theater, Cinema Paradiso-Fort Lauderdale. Combining old world charm with plush comfortable stadium style seating and state-of-art projection and sound, the 220 seat charmer also offers a beautiful outdoor courtyard perfect for parties and gatherings before and after movies. Cinema Paradiso also has a full bar and concessions.
In 2013, FLiFF will open Cinema Paradiso-Hollywood which will be located in the heart of downtown.
