Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival

FLIFF logo

The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) reels out over 200 films from around the globe. Filmmakers and celebrities attend many of the screenings and events during the festival. Parties and gatherings at area "hot spots", on board yachts, and on the beach will provide audiences an opportunity to hob knob with film talent and other movie buffs.




Last few days to submit a film to Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival

The most unique difference between entering FLIFF and your ordinary film festival, is opportunity. When you submit your film to FLIFF you are automatically entered for consideration into:

Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival November 6 - 22, 2015
Final Deadline August 15

Celebrating its 30th annual festival in 2015, the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) presents American indies and studio films, international films, special tributes and seminars and introduces industry leaders to South Florida audiences. The fall festival runs October-November, and annually screens foreign and independent films in Fort Lauderdale, Weston, Pompano Beach, Sunrise, Hollywood, St Augustine, Amelia Island, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Daytona Beach and The Bahamas. Considered one of the most important regional film festivals in the U.S., the Festival's commitment to first-time filmmakers and innovative programming make it the perfect test market for filmmakers.
