The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) screens over 200 films from around the globe. Filmmakers and celebrities attend many of the screenings and events over the 21 day festival. Parties and gatherings at area "hot spots", on board yachts, and on the beach provide audiences an opportunity to hobnob with film talent and other movie buffs. At the heart of the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival are the films and the artists that create them. During the festival, films are divided into the following sidebars: COMPETITION FILMS, WORLD FILMS, AMERICAN INDEPENDENTS, DOCUMENTARIES, SHORTS, SUNSHINE CELLULOID (films from filmmakers throughout the state of Florida), CHILDREN'S FILMS, GAY AND LESBIAN FILMS, RETROSPECITIVES AND TRIBUTES.
Over the years, FLIFF has consistently programmed some of the finest films made, many of which have become major box office hits and some that have been nominated or received an Oscar® including Pedro Almodovar's Volver & Bad Education, Mrs. Henderson Presents, The Matador, Being Julia and many more. Some of FLIFF's special guests over the years have included Matt Damon, Kevin Spacey, Sir Ben Kingsley, Ashley Judd, Elisabeth Shue, Michael Caine, Ben Affleck, Tim Roth, Maria Bello, and renowned directors including Martin Scorceses, Robert Wise, and Peter Bogdanovich.
Films screen at FLIFF's year-round art house, Cinema Paradiso, one of the festival's three theatre venues, located just around the corner from renowned Las Olas Blvd. Other theatre venues include Nova University's Miniachi Theatre in Davie and Regal Cypress Creek in Pompano Beach.
