where film meets imagination

Click for film events.

We have come a long way from when film was animation on screen without sound, to indie film stories to digital casts on green screens. Here are a few film events you can explore in Greater Fort Lauderdale. Film lovers will enjoy unique theaters such as Cinema Paradiso, home of the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival and definitely not your typical venue, to outdoor 50's style movie watching (bring the convertible), to the latest in film watching at the AutoNation IMAX 3D Theater in downtown Fort Lauderdale with the largest screen in South Florida. Greater Fort Lauderdale welcomes the International Academy of Film & Television, to Hollywood, FL.
