For the first time in three years, Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival enjoyed good weather and presented films that ballyhooed the culture of life. Over 200 films were presented with 9 World premiers, including predicted Oscar contender "Volver," and 72 Florida Premiers.
The 21st Annual FLiFF closed on an optimistic note. The South Florida community was engaged and the celebrity guests were approachable and open to conversation. FLiFF President and CEO Gregory von Hausch and Operations Hal Axler fulfilled the promise of what a community film festival ought to be. Kudos.
