What a great way to celebrate our 28th year, lots of celebrities, a plethora of great films, a spectacular Opening Night Extravaganza, the new Chairman’s Gala, and hopefully Cinema Paradiso-Hollywood (pages 42-43). Cinema Paradiso both locations are now utilizing Digital Cinema Projection; Gee, you went to bed last night and when you woke up it was the future! This allows films between these three venues to be shared. With a few exceptions, if a film plays there, it will probably play the other two venues as well. Sunrise benefits when we have HDCam or BluRay. We have added VIP tickets to many Special Screenings. These

Ann-Margret, a consummate entertainer, has been nominated twice for an Academy Award, won five Golden Globe Awards, won an Emmy, and received five other Emmy nominations. She is a threetime winner of the “Female Star of the Year” award and has been twice honored as “Outstanding Box Office Star of the Year” by the Theatre Owners of America and was voted “Song and Dance Star of the Year.” Ann-Margret was also nominated for a Grammy for her CD, “God is Love: The Gospel Sessions,” and has just released her second gospel album. Ann-Margret won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama for NBC’s highly rated drama, “Law & Order: SVU” and she received an Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nomination as Best Actress in a Movie for Television, starring as the legendary Pamela Harriman in the Lifetime film, “Life of the Party.” She guest starred in a three-part episode of NBC’s award winning series “Third Watch,” as well as the biggest franchise in television, “CSI.” She costarred in the 20th Century Fox film “Taxi” with Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon, “Old Dogs” with John Travolta and Robin Williams, “Loss of a Teardrop Diamond” with Bryce Dallas Howard, “All’s Faire in Love” with Christina Ricci and “Lucky” with Colin Hanks and Ari Graynor. She co-starred in the Oliver Stone movie, “Any Given Sunday,” with Al Pacino and Cameron Diaz. Her Showtime movie, “Happy Face Murders,” was the highest rated original movie for fifteen months. As a young girl, Ann-Margret was discovered by the legendary George Burns, and since her film debut playing Bette Davis’ daughter in “A Pocketful of Miracles,” Ann-Margret has made over fifty-two films, including such hits as “Cincinnati Kid,” “State Fair,” “Tommy,” “Carnal Knowledge,” “Bye Bye Birdie,” “Viva Las Vegas,” “Stagecoach,” “Grumpy Old Men” and its sequel, “Grumpier Old Men”.


She has co-starred with such luminaries as John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Anthony Hopkins, Jack Nicholson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kirk Douglas, Steve McQueen, Burt Reynolds, and Walter Matthau, among others. Her two Academy Award nominations were earned in director Mike Nichols’ famous film, “Carnal Knowledge,” and in the classic Ken Russell rock film, “Tommy.” Her television career has been equally impressive with brilliant dramatic performances and Emmy nominations for “Who Will Love My Children,” “Queen,” “The Two Mrs. Grenvilles” and “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Ann-Margret recorded the main title song for the DreamWorks Flintstones

movie, “Viva Rock Vegas.” She has also starred in many of her own television specials including “The Ann-Margret Show,” “From Hollywood With Love,” “Dames At Sea,” “When You’re Smiling,” “Ann-Margret Olsson,” “Rhinestone Cowgirl,” “Rockette: A Tribute to Radio City Music Hall” and “Cinderella at the Palace.” Ann-Margret has performed at the White House, received presidential citations for entertaining the U.S. armed forces overseas and was honored by the USO World Board of Governors. She was also named the Swedish American of the Year and gave a royal command performance for the King and Queen of Sweden. As further proof of her popularity, her autobiography, “My Story” reached the New York Times Best Seller List a week after publication. Ann-Margret starred in the $32 million-dollar grossing, coastto-coast production, which toured 39 cities, of “The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas,” as well as recording the new cast album. Ann-Margret is the national chairperson for the Myasthenia Gravis Division of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. She lives with her husband, Roger Smith, in Beverly Hills, California.

John Waters USA / 1981 / 86 min / BluRay / English

After making a name for himself with such underground gross-out epics as Pink Flamingos and Desperate Living, director John Waters made a bid for somewhat wider acceptance with this black comedy, which is sedate only by the standards of his previous work. Francine Fishpaw (Divine) is a housewife whose life has become a living hell. Her husband Elmer (David Samson) runs a porno theater (currently showing the classic My Burning Bush) and is having an affair with secretary Sandra (Mink Stole), a vision of sleaze in Bo Derek-style cornrow braids who informs Elmer, "Children would only get in the way of our erotic lifestyle!" Francine has two teenage children, Dexter (Ken King), who likes to sniff glue and stomp on women's feet, and Lulu (Mary Garlington), a brazen slut who hangs out with overage juvenile delinquent Bobo (Stiv Bators) and gleefully anticipates her next abortion. Francine's best friend, Cuddles (Edith Massey), is a slightly insane heiress who is somehow convinced she's a debutante. Francine's life has become so miserable that her dog commits suicide rather than witness it, but a light appears on the horizon -Todd Tomorrow (Tab Hunter), the handsome and dashing owner of a local drive-in specializing in art films (their current bill is a Margurerite Duras triple feature), with whom Dawn enters into a torrid affair. Subversive on all fronts, Polyester was originally shown in "Odorama" (patrons were given a card with ten scratch-and-sniff patches, to be smelled at key points in the action) and featured a romantic theme song sung by that new hitmaking duo, Deborah Harry and Bill Murray. Mark Deming, ALL MOVIE GUIDE

THE DIRECTOR: John Waters was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1946. For those of you who don't know, Maryland can be a pretty strange place to grow up. Luckily for John, 1960's Baltimore had a few saving graces. Here he would meet the men and women willing to work in front of and behind the camera on his self-written, self-produced and independently financed movies.

Over a period of more than 30 years, Waters has grown from a local boy making cheap, underground movies to a local man making counter-culture Hollywood comedies. But don't be fooled by the veneer - all of his films are shot on location in Baltimore and with very modest budgets. The star power of his post-Hairspray films demonstrate his influence and clout.

Waters writes all his own films, and the basic elements of filth and debauchery still exist in his screenplays just in a more palatable fashion. Also present in many of his films are the plastic sincerity and squashed innocence of late 50's and early 60's Americana: Sweet mothers who make breakfast for a family of four versus cheap girls who have babies in the backs of cars. Of course, he is most well known for breaking boundaries of acceptable filmmaking. Drugs, queers, abortion, religion - nothing is sacred in his field of vision. When asked about it, he says "secretly I think that all my films are politically correct, though they appear not to be. That's because they're made with a sense of joy." And perhaps that is why so many people from all around the world take such joy in his movies.

Lea Thompson was born 1961 in Minnesota, the youngest of 5 kids. Family lived in the Starlight motel, all the kids sharing a room. Things began to look up when Lea's father got a job in Minneapolis. Lea's parents divorced when she was 6, and her mother decided to maintain the family. Not an easy job considering her mother was alcoholic at the time. But she quit drinking, took a job playing the piano and singing in a bar to support the kids. Ever since Lea was little, she loved to dance. Her first role was a mouse in The Nutcracker. After Lea turned 14, she had performed in more than 45 ballets on stages including Minnesota Dance Theatre, and The Pennsylvania Ballet Company. She won scholarships to The American Ballet Theatre and San Francisco Ballet. At 19, she auditioned for Baryshnikov, who told her she was "a beautiful dancer... but too stocky." At that point, she decided to turn to acting. She began working as a waitress, also making 22 Burger King commercials and a few for Twix. As the average Midwest girl next door, she was perfect for these spots. First film role was in JAWS 3-D (‘83) as a water ski bunny, although she couldn't swim or ski, (still can't!). There she met Dennis Quaid, who became her fiancée/acting coach. Next was ALL THE RIGHT MOVES (‘83) opposite Tom Cruise. The director was so disappointed with her performance, that he almost fired her. From ‘83-84, Lea appeared in "teen" movies RED DAWN, THE WILD LIFE, and GOING UNDERCOVER, and believes these movies would use anyone who could walk and talk! Lea's big break, came from the first BACK TO THE FUTURE (‘85), the year’s biggest hit and Lea was suddenly the most wanted actress. She could have her pick of any role she wanted to take on. She did -and made the worst choice of her life, HOWARD THE DUCK (‘86). Although it was a George Lucas production, the critics panned the movie

and Lea. Afterwards, Howard Deutch offered Lea a part in SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL (‘87). She won the Best Young Artist Award. Howard and Lea fell in love and married (calling it off with Dennis first). During this time she filmed THE WIZARD OF LONELINESS (‘88), her first movie as a woman, rather than a youngster. Lea went on to film BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II (‘89) and an episode of "Tales from the Crypt" (‘89), BACK TO THE FUTURE PART III (‘90), MONTANA (‘90), and ARTICLE 99 (‘92). Lea then took a break to stay home with her first born, Madeline. In DENNIS THE MENACE (‘93), she says she just played herself, followed by THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES (‘93), STOLEN BABIES (‘93), THE LITTLE RASCALS (‘94), and THE SUBSTITUTE WIFE (‘94). In 1994, came her 2nd child, Zoey. Lea then filmed THE UNSPOKEN TRUTH (‘95). She was then given the script of a new NBC sitcom, "Caroline in the City" (‘95). It was probably her best decision, winning People's Choice Award for best actress in a new sitcom. After “Caroline...” Lea filmed THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT (‘96), THE UNKNOWN CYCLIST (‘98), and A WILL OF THEIR OWN (‘98). She guest-starred in "Friends" (’94), and on "The Larry Sanders Show" (‘92). Lea also did some stage work, including starring as Sally Bowles in Cabaret. The show toured and also appeared on Broadway. She then did The Vagina Monologues in L.A. Busy decade with STEALING CHRISTMAS and HAUNTED LIGHTHOUSE (‘03), COME AWAY HOME (’05), 10 tricks (’06), CALIFORNIA DREAMING, and HOW TO FIRE YOUR BOSS (’07), SPY SCHOOL, SENIOR SKIP DAY, and EXIT SPEED (’08), ROCK SLYDE, and SPLINTERHEADS (’09), ADVENTURES OF A TEENAGE DRAGON SLAYER (’10), THIN ICE, MAYOR CUPCAKE, J EDGAR (’11), and PING PONG SUMMER (’13). Lea is presently in production with WILD OATS.

Lea Thompson will receive the Career Achievement Award, Saturday, October 19 at Cinema Paradiso – Lauderdale followed by THE TROuBLE WITH THE TRuTH (pg16) in which she stars and Executive Produced. Lea will attend her other screenings in Hollywood, Pompano and Sunrise.

Alexander Payne – USA / 2013 / 105 min / DCP / English A poor old man living in Montana escapes repeatedly from his house to go to Nebraska to collect a sweepstakes prize he thinks he has won. Frustrated by his increasing dementia, his family debates putting him into a nursing home -- until one of his two sons finally offers to take his father by car, even as he realizes the futility.

En route the father is injured, and the two must rest a few days in the small decaying Nebraska town where the father was born and where, closely observed by the son, he re-encounters his past. (Don’t worry -- it’s a comedy.)

Shot in black and white across four American states, the film blends professional actors with non-actors and mirrors the mood and rhythms of its exotic locations.

The performance by Bruce Dern may go down as the best in his entire filmograpghy. Dern captures an amalgam of irascibility, befuddlement, and attempting to accept his life with a lovable (and perhaps somewhat universal) comedy. Will Forte (Saturday Night Live), often plays the straight man here, but takes his time and underplays the zingers he gets just beautifully in a nuanced performance that is kind and at time sad in accepting reality. Two time Oscar winner, Alexander Payne has added another angle of American to his palate which includes CITIZEN RUTH, ELECTION, ABOUT SCHMIDT, SIDEWAYS and THE DESCENDANTS.

THE DIRECTOR: Payne was born in Omaha, Nebraska, the son of Peggy (née Constantine) and George Payne, restaurant owners. He is of Greek descent (his grandfather anglicized the last name from Papadopoulos). He was the youngest of three sons and grew up in the same neighborhood as billionaire Warren Buffett. Payne attended Creighton Preparatory School and later Stanford University, where he double majored in Spanish and History. As a part of his Spanish degree, he studied at the University of Salamanca (Spain) and later he lived a few months in Medellin, Colombia where he published an article about the development and the social changes between 1900 and 1930. Payne got his MFA in 1990 from the UCLA Film School.

surprised one winter's day by an escaped convict who demands tools to remove his chains. Terrified, Pip does as he's asked but the convict is ambushed and thrown back into his dreadful prison ship that border the marshes by Pip's home.

A year later, Pip is employed by eccentric Miss Havisham, a local gentlewoman who has lived in seclusion since being abandoned at the altar 30 years ago. Pip is to act as a companion to Miss Havisham's beautiful 12-year-old ward, Estella. Pip falls in love with her and longs to become a gentleman in order to win her back when he's of age. It's a hopeless fantasy. The children part and Pip becomes an apprentice to his kindly brother-in-law Joe, the village blacksmith.

Ten years later, Pip, now a young man, receives the astonishing news that he has been given a huge fortune by an unnamed benefactor and is required to abandon Joe and his humble country life to be educated as a gentleman in London. Astonishingly, his childish hopes are fulfilled and he can now become the sophisticated young man he hoped to be during his childhood days with Estella.

From its very first appearance in his weekly journal ‘All The Year Round’ in December 1860, Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations has proved an enduring work. After boosting sales of the author’s failing magazine to the 100,000 mark, Great Expectations was published in novel form in 1861, going into its fourth edition within weeks of its first printing.

A Cambridge graduate born in St Albans, Newell got his first break as a Granta TV trainee, working his way to directing BAFTA nominated ‘Ready When You are Mr. McGill’ (‘76). Critical success in feature films came with the acclaimed DANCE WITH A STRANGER (‘85), an unflinching, powerful depiction of the life and death of England’s last woman to be sentenced to hanging. In 1994 the Oscar nomination for his iconic comedy, FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL established Newell’s directorial prowess in a wide range of material. DONNY BRASCO (‘97) quickly followed, delivering a striking performance from Pacino, and showcasing Newell’s ability to create electric films with an international appeal. Under Newell's command, HARRY POTTER & THE GOBLET OF FIRE, (‘05), considered one of the best films in the series, blended his talent for reaching an international audience with his capacity to visualize decidedly English characters. He even dabbled with new technologies by taking on PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME (‘10) and will next shoot the iconic British writer’s, Ian McEwan, novel ON CHESIL BEACH.

High school senior Addison Smith lives with his widowed mom, Libby, and paternal grandfather Collier in Santa Barbara. At 18, still practicing to get his driver’s license, Addison has never been one to rush into things – including relationships with girls. Collier, in fact – a bit worried about his grandson’s development – pressures him into a friendly bet: which of them will be the first to seduce a lady. Collier picks Addison’s potential conquests at the high school, as Addison and his buddies pick Collier’s at the retirement facility. As the bet plays itself out in this coming-of-age romantic comedy, Addison’s mom, Libby, is herself just starting to date again, after the death of her husband several years before. What ensues is three generations of a family, all looking for love – sometimes in the right places, sometimes in the wrong ones, sometimes comically, sometimes poignantly. Along the way, they learn, and teach each other, lessons about love, life, maturity, and what it means to grow into adulthood. Screenplay: Annie J.

Life is good for Brandon, now that he's one of the guys and dating hometown beauty Lana. However, he's forgotten to mention one important detail.

Saturday, Oct 26, 4:30pm, SC Following the screening, The Pauly Cohen Orchestra will take the stage for a performance


Paul Benjamin Cohen was born in Brooklyn, New York on October 4, 1922. At the insistence of his father, a veteran of World War I who picked up a horn in France, Pauly began playing the trumpet at the age of six. In high school, he was awarded a scholarship to study with famed New York Philharmonic first trumpeter Willian Vacchiano. By his mid-teens, Pauly was already working professionally and when he graduated from Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, he moved to Manhattan and began his career as a traveling musician. Because of his already burgeoning trumpet abilities, Pauly quickly work in the studios, playing in the orchestra of radio programs. After he finished his nightly assignments on radio, he always made his way to 52nd Street, where he was befriended by Billie Holiday and other noted Jazz legends. An early mentor was Dizzy Gillespie, who he met in the mid-40s when they were both in the trumpet section of the Earl Hines Big Band that included Charlie Parker. Pauly began playing lead trumpet and in just a few years, he built a reputation that found him very much in demand with the most popular big bands of the era. Accordingly, Pauly was on the road and playing lead trumpet with such legends as Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw and Charlie Barnett. Along with big band gigs, radio and recording sessions, Pauly also played in the pit bands of Broadway shows. He was truly the trumpeter’s trumpeter and a musician of first call. As the music business in New York changed, Pauly began spending more time in Miami, working in the hotel bands that backed singers, in-


cluding Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. There was a thriving Jazz scene in Miami during the 50s and 60s, and Pauly was very involved, playing gigs, jamming, and doing some teaching on the side. In the 70s, Pauly worked his dream gig, playing lead trumpet with the Count Basie Orchestra. The Basie band had a reputation for featuring the best arrangements, and the best players and Pauly fit right in. After leaving Basie, Pauly moved to South Florida in the early 80s. Although he was nearly 70, Pauly had no intention of retiring and he kept working hotel gigs and anything else that came up. But at the same, he realized that there was one thing he had not done during his distinguished career, and that was to lead his own group. And so the Pauly Cohen Orchestra was born, over twenty five years ago. A weekly rehearsal band, the group manages to perform at five or six different concerts a year, recording DVDs and CDs, as well. Filmmaker Bret Primack began documenting Pauly Cohen and his Orchestra just after Pauly turned 88 and last year, Bret created a week of 90th Birthday events that he captured on film. The resulting documentary, Taking Charge – The Pauly Cohen Story, premiered at the Arizona International Film Festival this past April. SOUTHEAST PREMIERE Now a resident of Tamarac and beginning his 91st year, Pauly Cohen is still following his dream, still playing the trumpet and still leading his EAST COAST PREMIERE big band. “I’m going to the end. I’m going to play my trumpet until I can’t play my trumpet. And if I can’t play my trumpet, I’m going to lead WORLD PREMIERE my band, even from a chair.”

What do these hyberbolic taglines have in common? They were all attached to classic drive-in flicks by Miami-born writer/director/producer William Grefé, respectively THE WILD REBELS, THE NAKED ZOO and THE DEVIL'S SISTERS. From the early 1960's through the '90s, Bill (now a lecturer) was responsible for these and other South Florida B-movies, including STANLEY, MAKO: THE JAWS OF DEATH, IMPULSE, I EAT YOUR SKIN, and perhaps his best-known work, the 1966 cult double bill DEATH CURSE OF TARTU and STING OF DEATH. Along with his SoFla exploitation comrades Herschel Gordon Lewis and Doris Wishman, Bill kept the nation's drive-ins, and later video store shelves, rockin' with bikers, sex, psychos, drugs, zombies and killer animals. Along the way he featured such name stars as William Shatner (IMPULSE), Rita Hayworth (NAKED ZOO), and Don Johnson (CEASE FIRE), and supervised the shark and 'gator scenes in the 007 thriller LIVE AND LET DIE.

One of the things all teenagers believe is that their parents were never teenagers. Their parents were, perhaps, children once. They are undeniably adults now. But how could they have ever been teenagers, and yet not understand their own children? But "Back to the Future" is even more hopeful: It argues that you can travel back in time to the years when your parents were teenagers, and straighten them out right at the moment when they needed help the most. Lea Thompson (who is here with her fantastic new bittersweet comedy, THE TROUBLE WITH THE TRUTH) will introduce the film. (And Lea will be intro-ed by our resident BTTF aficionado, Kevin Bosch).

From the beginning, the rebuilding effort has been fraught with controversy, FLORIDA PREMIERE drama, delays and politics. To date, the struggle has enFESTIVAL WINNERS compassed ten years, nineteen government agencies, a NORTH AMERICA dozen projects, and over $20PREMIERE billion and counting. WORLD PREMIERES Aside from the staggering engineering challenges of the

site itself, a major complicating factor is the sheer number of interested parties. Politicians, developers, architects, insurance companies, local residents, and relatives of 9/11 victims all profess a claim to the site and are often in conflict with one another. According to The New York Times, “Where some saw lucrative real estate, others saw a graveyard. Where some saw Rockefeller Center or Lincoln Center or Grand Central Terminal, others saw Gettysburg.” But what was once ground zero is now a frenzied construction site. Three thousand workers are building four of the tallest skyscrapers in America, an iconic – and complicated – train station, a performing arts center and a sacred memorial and museum. What will emerge in downtown Manhattan over the next few years will redefine the city – and the country – for generations.

16 ACRES is the story of how and why this historic project got built. At the heart of the story is the dramatic tension between noblest intentions, the desire of everyone involved to “get it right,” and the politics, hubris, ego and ideology that is the bedrock of New York City.

As with all great urban projects, from the Pyramids to Rome’s Coliseum to Rockefeller Center, a small group of powerful people will dictate the outcome. With inside access to the project and these key players, 16 ACRES will tell the story behind the headlines.

In January of 2010, Lisa Liotta of the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) contacted me regarding the possibility of creating a cinema in Downtown Hollywood. City Manager (then Assistant Mgr) Cathy Rivenbark-Swanson had formulated a plan that would broker a partnership between the beach hotels and superior lodgings and downtown merchants. An annual contribution of $30,000 for ten years would be given to Cinema Paradiso from the CRA in exchange for 3,000 tickets to the films. These tickets would be given to tourists and visitors staying at the beach hotels. The CRA sponsored trolley would provide transportation and the tourists/visitors would take in a movie, have lunch or dinner, an after movie gelato or frozen yogurt, browse the short, inject commerce into downtown, provide an on-going cultural option to visitors and residents while guaranteeing the life of the cinema. From 2010 – late 2012, the CRA showed us over a dozen different properties. With each site we would evaluate the plausibility of creating a cinema balanced against the renovation costs along with the desire-ability of the location with respect to movie-goers. Finally, we found 2008 Hollywood Boulevard, a centrally located property owned by New York based Jenel Management, that fit all of our needs. We worked with the owner’s agent, Cristina Moinelo of CBA Realty and Joseph Kaller, a Hollywood architect the owners had worked with often. Once we were confident we could make this a reality, Jorge Camejo, Executive Director of the Downtown Hollywood CRA brought the project to his Board. On January 9th of this year, the Board, led by Mayor Peter Bober and unanimously approved by Commissioners Patty Asseff, Kevin D. Biederman, Richard Blattner, Traci L. Callari,


Peter D. Hernandez, and Linda Sherwood, this project received enthusiastic support from the business and residential community as well. Now all that was left was to raise a quarter million dollars, design the space, get engineers on-board, permit, build and have it inspected so we could open by October for FLIFF. No, this was no piece of cake. Led by FLIFF Chairman Alan Koslow, we began monthly fundraisers at downtown restaurants. Our first event at FACE (Kimy & Michel) was just what we needed to capture enthusiasm for the project. That was followed by The Tipsy Boar ( Carmen & Fulvio Sardelli), Sage Oster Bar (Irina Kirshner?) and Lola’s (Robert and Audra Mignola). Businesses also lent great support, including The Westin Diplomat, Marriott Hollywood Beach, Crowne Plaza, Menchie’s Yogurt, The Goodyear Blimp, JetBlue, Hillcrest Golf Course, Island City House (Key West) among others. At those events we were fortunate to have some substantial contributions including Janet Schwartz Leavy ($11,500) who will name our sidewalk cafe after her parents, Joan Shames ($5,000), Laurie Schechter ($2,500), Irv Cohen ($2,500), Irwin Levenstein ($1,500), among many others who donated from $50 - $500 each. Meanwhile, momentum among the business and philanthropic community began taking shape. A major catalyst was the pledge of the Community Foundation of Broward through their Mary N. Porter legacy Fund to commit $150,000 over a four year time-frame, with the caveat of us raising a $1 to $1 match. Jarett Levan of BBX Capital was the first to commit $10,000 and it was immediately matched by NEW YOU Magazine. Things began to look a little stymied as we realized we wanted to be open this October but the grant funds would

WORLD PREMIERE UNITED STATES PREMIERE FLORIDA PREMIERE Isaak James WINNERS FESTIVAL USA / 2013 / 82 min / English NORTH AMERICA PREMIERE After being laid off from her teaching job in WORLD PREMIERES Boston, Brooke moves back home to live with her parents. In the shadow of the dying Occupy Movement, she is but one of the many overeducated and underemployed forced to make such a retreat. Disillusioned and weighed down by the daily monotony of working in her family's restaurant, she struggles to find a way back to her independent, adult life.

When her estranged childhood friend Morgan pays an unexpected visit, old wounds are reopened and Brooke is forced to confront all the thwarted expectations she once had for herself.

Set in a winter on Cape Cod that’s both bleak and beautiful, “By Way of Home” is an intimate portrait of a generation interrupted, a story about family, friendship, love and the ever more elusive American dream.

From the early days of silent films to present day, from Chaplin to X-Men, disability portrayals are ever changing. This dynamic documentary takes a detailed look at the evolution of "disability" in entertainment. Our in-depth investigation goes behind the scenes to interview Filmmakers, Studio Executives, Film Historians, and Celebrities, as well as utilize vivid clips from Hollywood's most beloved motion pictures and television programs to focus attention on the powerful impact that entertainment and the media can have on society. Do disability portrayals in the media impact society or does the media simply reflect our ever-changing attitudes? In this important documentary we see if media has had a hand in transforming the societal inclusion of the disabled and determine if an enlightened understanding of disability can have a positive impact on the world.

Stan Romanek is at the center of world’s most documented extraterrestrial contact story, and the multitude of evidence accumulated over the past decade has convinced thousands around the world his story is true. This documentary film takes audiences on a journey through Stan’s past, present and future with one goal in mind: Help the world understand that no one knowingly chooses the challenges Stan and his family have endured. His experiences have forever changed his views on life, religion, science and the essence of humanity.

A FRAGILE TRUST tells the shocking story of Jayson Blair, the most infamous serial plagiarist of our time, and how he unleashed the massive scandal that rocked the New York Times and the entire world of journalism. In 2003 Blair was caught plagiarizing and supplementing his own reporting with fabricated details in dozens of stories published in the Times. The daily operations of the Times newsroom became a public spectacle as every major news outlet picked up the story and ran with it. The fact that Blair is African-American was emphasized again and again as accounts of the ‘Blair Affair’ served up sordid details in a soap-opera style tale of deception, drug abuse, racism, mental illness, hierarchy, white guilt, and power struggles inside the hallowed halls of the New York Times. Through the course of the film, we follow Blair as he slowly unravels in the face of mounting pressures and distractions. Starting with his ‘reporting’ of the plagiarized article that ultimately lead to his undoing, we trace the rise and fall of this fascinating young reporter as he clings to his career at the Times even as he is losing his mind. Featuring exclusive interviews with everyone involved, including former Executive Editor Howell Raines and Blair himself, A FRAGILE TRUST is the first film to tell the whole sordid story of the scandal while exploring these deeper themes.

Yuri Grigorovich – Russia / 2013

215 min / DCP / Ballet

The powerful Roman consul Crassus returns to Rome in triumph from his conquest of Thrace. The Thracian king and queen, Spartacus and his wife Phrygia, are captives of the conquering general. As Phrygia is taken away to the harem of concubines kept by Crassus, Spartacus bids her a sorrowful farewell and mourns his captivity. To entertain Crassus and his entourage, Spartacus is sent into the gladiatorial arena and forced to kill a close friend. Horrified, Spartacus incites his fellow captives to rebellion.

While the escaped captives celebrate their freedom, Crassus entertains the Roman patricians with a lavish banquet, including fights between blindfolded gladiators. One of the concubines, the alluring Aegina, seduces the guests to begin an orgy. Spartacus and his comrades disrupt the orgy and rescue the slave women, including Phrygia, who, along with Spartacus, celebrates their escape (to the strains of the familiar “Adagio of Spartacus and Phrygia.”)

Aegina discovers the rebels’ camp and sees the lovers Spartacus and Phrygia emerging from their tent in the morning. Aegina sends word to Crassus. His army pursues the rebels, who have succumbed to arguments and in-fighting. The Roman forces discover Spartacus and impale him on their spears. The hero’s closest followers retrieve his body and carry it off as Phrygia mourns her loss.

EAST COAST PREMIERE WORLD PREMIERE THE GEOGRAPHER DRANK HIS GLOBE AWAY UNITED STATES PREMIERE Geograf Globus Propil), Alexandr Veledinsky FLORIDA PREMIERE Russia / 2012 / 120 min / DCP / Russian w/ FESTIVAL English sub-titles WINNERS NORTH AMERICA PREMIERE Young biologist Viktor Sluzhkin, suffering from WORLD PREMIERES lack of money, becomes a teacher of geography in a secondary school in the city of Perm’. At first he has to fight with pupils but he soon becomes their friend, taking them rafting. He quarrels with the Deputy Principal, drinks wine with his friends, tries to get on with his wife and takes his young daughter to the kindergarten. It is just a life… but Aleksey Ivanov wrote this ordinary private story with such recklessness, such tenderness, such acuteness that The Geographer Drank His Globe Away became, as it is often the case with good books, a story about everyone. It is a story about everyone who lost his way in life, about everyone who sometimes felt himself as desperately lonely as Viktor Sluzhkin, about everyone who, despite his solitude and depression, never lost the capacity to feel and to love.

The Geographer Drank His Globe Away is a Russian drama film made in 2013, directed by Alexander Veledinsky, based on the novel of the same name by Alexei Ivanov. The action of the film, as opposed to the novel, has been transferred from the "dashing nineties" to the present day. The film participated in the XXIV Open Russian Film Festival "Kinotavr" in Sochi and was awarded the main prize. It will be released in Russia during the autumn of 2013.

Ian Harvie’s debut stand-up comedy concert film, Superhero, is the culmination of his very personal journey of having been born a girl and later becoming a self-made man. It’s Ian’s facile sense of ease, not just his gender-bending presence that makes his humor groundbreaking; and has lead him to make history on more than one occasion. It’s these very qualities that attracted the notorious Margaret Cho to publicly rave about Ian’s work and have him as her opening act for years. Ian is ‘quite possibly the most unique comic in the country’ says Frontiers Magazine and yet his jokes strike the core of all shared human experiences.

Ian, a charismatic new spatial orientation instructor, arrives at a topnotch Lisbon school for the visually impaired. He is taking up the position of teacher with blind patients. The head teacher hires Ian under condition that the children will not be exposed to any danger as they learn to move around by themselves.

The new teacher uses unconventional methods. During spatial orientation sessions Ian quickly wins the trust of his students; a small group of children and teenagers of various nationalities. They’ve come to the school, often travelling long distances, in the hope of curing their blindness or arresting their progressive loss of sight. Ian’s techniques intrigue the children and embolden them to explore their surroundings. But more than only teaching them how to move without a white cane, Ian encourages his students to develop their vision of the world. Ian even pushes them sometimes to attempt challenges with an element of risk.

The team behind the investigation return, track down the illegal circuses, which are spread all over the country, and save every animal. The confrontations, heartache and incredible risks the rescue team face are all captured before a joyous finale sees an incredible airlift of 25 lions to freedom in Colorado. A story of bravery, compassion, camaraderie and determination. How a poor but proud country said 'no' to cruelty and how attitudes to animals were changed across an entire continent.

The lions emerge as the real stars and you, surprisingly, find yourself rooting for the most aggressive of them all. An uplifting movie with twists and turns that is still gritty, surprising, informative and pulls no punches. At last a film about serious animal protection and environmental issues that will leave you smiling!

Set in present day London, LOVE TOMORROW is the story of a former Royal Ballet dancer whose life is turned upside down after receiving devastating news. Wandering the underground in a torment of pain and confusion, a chance encounter with a charismatic Cuban ballet dancer called Oriel offers a temporary distraction. Oriel overlooks her engagement ring and suggests she spends some time with him.

Why she follows this insistent stranger is unclear, and why he tolerates her reserve, mood swings and outright hostility is also unclear. But he is troubled too and as the night lengthens and turns into day, the frustrations, secrets and wounds of both their lives begin to emerge, and a fragile friendship promises to turn into something more profound. Dance is a powerful force throughout the film and its energy allows the dancers to push forward and to build a powerful bond.

Dudley Nichols – USA / 1947 / 157 min / DVD / English

Academy Award winning screenwriter Dudley Nichols (THE INFORMER (1935)) also produced four films and directed three, this was the last time he did either; his previous effort in both capacities also featured Rosalind Russell in the title role, SISTER KENNY (1946). For both efforts, the actress received Best Actress Oscar nominations, this being her third of four (unrewarded) nominations for her career. Nichols also wrote the screenplay from the Eugene O'Neill play. In addition to Russell, Michael Redgrave received his only Academy recognition, a Best Actor nomination.

The story is an updated version of the classic Greek tragedy of Agamemnon, the commander who returned from Troy hungry for a renewed life with his spouse only to find that his wife has strayed with a younger man (that could be his own son). She poisons him and then (she and her lover) must suffer the wrath of her own son and daughter, who are then haunted by guilt and their own demons (including near incestuous jealousy) for their vengeful act. In this case, Raymond Massey plays Union General Ezra Mannon who's returned home from the Civil War to his loving daughter Lavinia aka 'Vinnie' (Russell), the titled Electra, with his injured son Orin (Redgrave). Shortly before he's murdered, Ezra learns that wife Christine (Katina Paxinou, looking quite a bit younger and more attractive than she did in her Academy Award winning Best Supporting Actress stint as Pilar in FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS (1943) is in love with the son of a former Mannon family maid that he'd thrown out of the house for diddling his brother; Leo Genn plays Adam Brant. The drama plays out in three acts: The Homecoming, The Hunted, and The Haunted.

Also in the cast are Kirk Douglas (in his third film) as Peter Niles, who courts Lavinia, Nancy Coleman as his sister Hazel Niles, who's in love with Orin, Henry Hull as the Mannon's 40 year groundskeeper (that does what he's told) Seth Beckwith, Sara Allgood as a landlady, and Thurston Hall as the family doctor named Blake. Additionally, Elisabeth Risdon, Erskine Sanford, and Jimmy Conlin also appear briefly. Courtesy of The Classic Film Guide For its first season in the new opera house at Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Opera commissioned a new American Opera, Mourning Becomes Electra, by Marvin David Levy for the historical event. Following its premiere in 1967, Levy’s opera was so well received by critics and audiences alike that additional performances were given during the Met’s following season as well. After years of neglect, Lyric Opera of Chicago mounted a major revival in 1998, during which Mourning Becomes Electra was acclaimed as a great American masterpiece for its overwhelming dramatic impact and potent score.

Subsequent productions were given by Seattle Opera in 2003 and New York City Opera in 2004. On November 7, 2013, Florida Grand Opera will open its season at the Broward Center with the fourth American production of this riveting work. Based on Eugene O’Neill’s 1931 play of the same name, Mourning Becomes Electra demonstrates just how profoundly O’Neill’s plays transformed the American theater, and its tormented characters provide limitless opportunities for a gifted opera composer like Marvin David Levy. The legendary 1947 film of O’Neill’s play will enhance your operatic experience exponentially!


The Film Festival is proud to partner with The Florida Grand Opera to present this classic film.

Hiner Saleem – Iraq-Iran-Turkey-France / 2013 / 100 min / DCP / Kurdish w/English sub-titles

After the fall of Saddam Hussein, Baran, a Kurdish independence war hero, resolves to accept a position in a godforsaken village at the borders of Iran, Iraq and Turkey. It is a lawless territory, right at the heart of illegal drug, medication and alcohol trafficking. Having arrived in the small village, he refuses to bow down to Aga Azzi, the seriously corrupt tribal chief and absolute ruler of the area. Baran meets Govend, the village school teacher, who is also rejected by the villagers. Like Baran, she represents another law, that of the young and autonomous Kurdish state. Govend is all the more vulnerable as she is not a married woman. Together, Govend and Baran will defy Aga Azzi's power, and help the Turkish Kurd resistance movement.

Gillo Pontecorvo, however, decided to present this footage in 1992 at the Venice Film Festival as an “unfinished work,” which in turn allowed Mrs. Saleem to raise the financing he needed for his next film, VIVE LA MARIÉE... and the liberation of Kurdistan (Kebab Connection). He then made a drama with autobiographical underpinnings, PASSEURS DE RÊVES (BEYOND OUR DREAMS), followed by VODKA LEMON: awarded Best Film at the Venice Film Festival 2005. His feature film, KILOMETER ZERO, was part of the official selection at the Cannes Film Festival (and later that year played FLIFF). This was followed in 2007 by the release of DOL OU LA VALLÉE DES TAMBOURS. He directed in the film Beneath the rooftops of Paris – earning Michel Piccoli Best Actor prize at Locarno International Film Festival. In 2011 Mr. Saleem shot IF YOU DIE, I’LL KILL YOU.

OIL SANDS KARAOKE follows five oil patch workers vying to win a karaoke contest in one of the most controversial places on the planet; Northern Alberta’s infamous Tar Sands. These five characters know they’re at the center of a global controversy and yet they continue to work there. Not only that, but they work long hours every day for extended periods, endure extreme physical hardship, and enjoy very few pleasures. Why? The money. But what motivates a person in this situation to sing karaoke, and to take it seriously? We’ll experience the 6 day/12 hour shifts, the incredible scale of the mines, the drugs, alcohol & gambling, the buried unspoken guilt – as well as the pride in a job well done producing a valued commodity for an appreciative market - all alleviated for a few increasingly magical seconds by the time on stage. OIL SANDS KARAOKE will make us laugh, sing along, and perhaps re-examine our biases.

THE DIRECTORS: Following in the footsteps of Frank Costello and Jean-Pierre Melville and Alain Delon’s Le Samourai, SALVO, Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza’s debut film, screened at the Critics’ Week at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The dark comedy set in Sicily has yet to find Italian distribution, and producers Massimo Cristaldi (producer of Cinema Paradiso AND and past FLIFF guest) and Fabrizio Mosca were only able to make the film thanks to French coproduction

“The genre and perspective choices come from the story’s needs,” Grassadonia explained. “The story is born with a mafia killer who commits a brutal crime. This has a connotation which seemed noir to us, and it seemed right for us to bring the spectator into a classic style of narration. But we then introduce an extraordinary element, at which point the characters fall into another story, which means we adapted to this evolution in genre. We asked ourselves: how do you present blindness? It was a formal choice to accept silence within the silence of knowing in such desolate surroundings. It was not simply an exhibition game, but involved a will to deeply follow the depth within the sense of story.”

“I agree with what Fabio said, but would like to add that we believe in the screenplay as a starting point and we love cinema genres. In Italy though, it seems like comedy is the only genre possible, while we took the risk to go and find something different. There have been great genre masters, but now there is a demolition and homogenization going on which we are not interested in.”

Something in the boxes is highly coveted and Víctor... and his pursuers quickly find themselves caught up in a crime they know nothing about.

"genre-film bliss … The storytelling confidence, unaffected acting, and, above all, a heightened grasp of plotting and logistics on display in 7 Boxes is astonishing." ` TWITCH

Gita Weinrauch Kaufman is a writer and teacher in New York who fled Austria with her parents just as the entire family was about to be sent to a concentration camp. More than 50 years later, she returned to Vienna with her husband and co-director, Curt Kaufman, to search for her past and understand the country of her birth. She asks the question: Is present-day Austria truly different from the one she left? As she winds her way through past and present Vienna, Gita speaks to the former US Ambassador to Austria, Ronald Lauder, the now infamous former UN Secretary General, Kurt Waldheim, and many less well-known but no-less-important voices as the film brings other issues to the table: Austrian resistance to the Nazis; collective guilt and blame; and the responsibility of today’s generation for the sins of their parents. By careful combination of the personal and the political, Kurt and Gita Kaufman have added more human voices to the tragedy of the Shoah to make sure it is not forgotten.

Traumatised because his father did not tell him the truth about the death of his mother when he was young, 50-something Walter will not tolerate the slightest lie. Walter never lies. And he expects his two best friends, Jacques and Paul, and his 20year-old daughter, Clémence, to be completely truthful as well.

Paolo Virzì – ITALY / 2012 / 102 min / DCP / Italian w/English sub-titles

Guido is shy, reserved, well-educated. Antonia is restless, touchy and proudly ignorant. He is a night porter who loves ancient languages and saints. She is an aspiring singer and works for a car rental company. They see each other only in the early mornings when Guido returns from work and wakes her with breakfast, and they make love every blessed day.

They are the characters of a fun, romantic love story which unfolds in a complicated metropolis like Rome, with coarse, cheerful, desperate neighbors, and two families of origin which couldn’t be more different. A love that seems indestructible, until the obstinate thought of a child that doesn’t come sets unpredictable consequences in motion.

Writer: Francesco Bruni, Simone Lenzi, Paolo Virzì / Producer: Motorino Amaranto / Cinematography: Vladan Radovic / Film Editing: Cecilia Zanuso / Costume Design: Cristina La Parola / Production Design: Alessandra Mura / Cast: Luca Marinelli, Federica Victoria Caiozzo, Micol Azzurro, Claudio Pallitto, Stefania Felicioli, Franco Gargia, Giovanni La Parola, Mimma Pirrè, Benedetta Barzini, Fabio Gismondi / Contact: Jef Nuyts IntraMovies, Rome Sponsored by

THE DIRECTOR: Paolo Virzi was born in Livorno, Italy in 1964, the son of a police officer in the Carabinieri and a former singer. After spending his early childhood in Turin in the north of Italy, Virzi’s family moved back to Livorno where he grew up in the working class area of “Le Sorgenti”. As a small boy, he started to cultivate his lifelong passion for literature: Mark Twain and Charles Dickens were among his favorite authors and their classic “coming of age” novels would later serve as a model for his future screenplays. As a teenager, Virzi’s versatility was already in evidence as he threw himself into writing, directing and acting in plays for drama companies in Livorno. He formed an artistic partnership with his schoolmate Francesco Bruni, who would later become his trusted co-screenwriter. For a time, Paolo attended Literature and Philosophy classes at Pisa University and shot some short films and a few longer features that have since vanished in the annals of time. He then left Livorno for Rome, where he studied screenwriting at the historic Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia film school, graduating in 1987. His teachers included prestigious film director, Gianni Amelio and the screenwriter of some of the greatest Italian movies of all time, Furio Scarpelli: Scarpelli was to play a crucial role in Virzi’s life, becoming his mentor and his guide, his “maestro” in other words. Paolo co-wrote with Scarpelli the screenplay for “Tempo di Uccidere”, starring Nicolas Cage. Between the late 1980s and early 1990s, he also cowrote the screenplays of Turnè (On Tour) (1990) directed, Condominio (1991). He also worked with the famous Neapolitan writer Raffaele La Capria on a TV movie directed by Alberto Negrin and adapted from the novel Una questione privata (A Private Affair), starring young British actor and star of Room with a View, Rupert Graves.

Bernard Rose – USA-UK / 90 min / BluRay / English

Jack Hussar (Danny Huston), renowned filmmaker, returns to LA.Brad, an adoring fan, keen to advance, takes Jack to high-powered industry parties full of potential investors for his next film. Jack is reminded of why he left Hollywood, but entranced by the stunning Diana (Sienna Miller). After a seemingly meaningful encounter, Jack steals himself away to another after party. Tiring of sycophantic financiers and clinging actresses Jack visits studio head Lorenzo, his old nemesis. Jack suggests one last high-stakes poker game, negotiating the conditions of his next film - and bailing out young director Colin, a victim of Lorenzo’s old tricks. Jack wins the hand and reluctantly says goodbye to the sleeping Diana before leaving town forever.

Years later Jack's son – Jack Jr. (Jack Huston), arrives in LA for his directorial debut. Diana (now Jaqueline Bisset) discovers her former lover's son is in town through her daughter Lily. History seems to repeat itself, as Jack pursues Lily, interrupted by a summons from his producer, the vindictive Lorenzo. Jack is introduced to Lorenzo’s girlfriend Laura, who seduces him into getting caught having sex in a car. Jack is fired from the film, returning home with a hard lesson learned.

Based on Tolstoy’s "THE TWO HUSSSARS", this film shows the struggle of a son trying to step out of the shadow of his famous father. Although culture changes, human nature doesn’t and mistakes are repeated. Romantic visions of the past block characters from living authentically in the present, still universal themes today.

Screenplay: Bernard Rose (Story by Leo Tolstoy) / Producers: Julia Verdin / Cinematographer: Bernard Rose / Editor: Matt Dean & Evans Butterworth/ Composer: Anatoliy Mamalyga, Billy Morrison, Iryna Orlova / Production Designer: Bradd Fillmann / Art Director: / Principal Cast: Danny Huston, Jack Huston, Sienna Miller, Jacqueline Bisset, Billy Zane / Contact: @Two_Jacks Bernard Rose’s filmmaking career spans 30 years and includes directing and writing credits for films such as the cult horror classic Candyman (1992), Immortal Beloved (1994), and Mr. Nice (2010).

Born in London, Rose started his career on a good note, at the young age of nine when he won the 1975 BBC young filmmakers competition. He went on to work as an assistant for Jim Henson on the Muppet Show and The Dark Crystal. Later, Rose attended The National Film and Television School, where he graduated in 1982. Branching off on his own, Rose became one of the pioneering music video directors in the early days of MTV, shooting promos for “Relax,” Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Roger Waters, and Red Red Wine – UB40.

Rose made the career choice of turning down working for major studios to make his films on digital cameras. In addition to 2 Jacks, Rose has adapted two other Tolstoy works for the screen Anna Karenina (‘97) and Boxing Day (‘12).

Lydia B. Smith – USA-Spain-France / 2013 / 84 min / DCP / English + Spanish w/English sub-titles

Stunning landscapes. Blisters. World-class snorers. Searing sun, freezing rain. Kindness from strangers. Total exhaustion. You will encounter all this on Spain’s ancient 500-mile pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago.

Walking the Camino follows various pilgrims as they attempt to cross an entire country on foot – with only a backpack, boots, and an open mind. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, each pilgrim throws themselves heart-and-soul into their physical trek to Santiago, and their personal journey to themselves. There are as many reasons for walking the Camino as there are people doing it, but no one can predict how the journey will unfold. It is the promise of experiencing something truly extraordinary.

This documentary has been creating a buzz at recent festivals. At the Ashland Independent Film Festival, it sold out all five screenings before any other film. At American Documentary, it won the “Audience Favorite Award”. In Newport Beach, demand was so great, it not only sold out its two scheduled screenings, it was granted three additional screenings and won “Outstanding Achievement in Documentary Filmmaking”. Most recently, the film won “Best Documentary” at both Rainier Independent Film Festival and the Santiago Film Festival in Spain.

It salvages a forgotten and dramatic moment in Brazilian history that remains up-to-date and urgent still today.

1940’s. Three young brothers decide to embark on a great adventure. They enlist in the Roncador-Xingu Expedition and head out on a trailblazing mission through Central Brazil. The saga begins with the crossing of the Mortes River after which they soon take over as expedition leaders and become involved in protecting the Indians and their diverse cultures, as seen written in a diary entitled The March West.

On a trip unlike any other in Brazilian history, after innumerous skirmishes, 1500 kilometers of paths cleared, 1000 kilometers of rivers navigated, 19 airstrips cleared, 43 villages visited and 14 tribes contacted, besides the over 200 bouts with malaria, the Villas-Boas brothers manage to create the Xingu National Park in 1961, an ecological park and Indian reservation the size of Belgium and which, at the time, was the largest in the world.

As the Villas-Boas begin their adventure they pass through the territory of the Xavante Indians, a courageous and warrior tribe, without causing any casualties on either side. They soon come upon the Kalapalo Indians, infamous and feared for having supposedly killed English explorer Percy Fawcett. They could never have imagined that it was there that they would suffer one of the biggest tragedies of their lives...

Kenneth Shapiro - USA / 2013 / 89 min / DCP / English

John Denver and opera fans alike have something to look forward to this summer. Legendary music producer, Milt Okun along with composer Lee Holdridge are bringing some of the most famous names in opera to John Denver’s famous hit songs: “Great Voices Sing John Denver”. It was Milt Okun’s wife Rosemary Okun’s idea to have opera singers sing some of John’s greatest hits. Kenneth Shapiro's film goes behind the scenes to discover why each artist chose the song that they sing and what John Denver's music did to each artist. He even captures the essence of their actual recording sessions.

There was no question in Milt’s mind that in order to get the ball rolling he needed the good graces and support of Plácido Domingo. “The instant I mentioned the idea to Plácido, he said yes.” Milt says, “He and John had such a warm relationship. I remember the time when we were recording ‘Perhaps Love’ in 1981 with such fondness. They hit it off immediately and just loved working together.”

Elisa Justice, who co-produced the album worked closely with the agents in getting the singers that were requested on board, while coordinating their schedules to get them in the studio. Elisa also brought in singers that had not been thought of, adding enormous variety to the project.

With Plácido leading the way, the CD was bound to have any singer that they wanted. The result is a wonderful album comprised of opera stars of all voices and several generations.

Screenplay: Kennth Shapiro / Producers: Elisa Justice, Kenneth Shapiro, Mark Shimmel, Milton Okun, Peter Primont, Rosemary Okun / Cinematographer: Matt Bass / Editor: David W. Foster / Composer: Lee Holdridge / Featuring: Placido Domingo, Placido Domingo, Jr, Barbara Padilla, Daniel Montenegro, Daniella de Niese, Denyce Graves, Dolora Zajick, Matthew Polenzani, Patricia Racette, Nathan Gunn, Rene Pape, Rod Gilfry, Shenyang Shenyang / Contact: Kenneth Shapiro @SingJohnDenver Sponsored by

THE DIRECTOR: One of today’s most multitalented producer/directors, Kenneth Shapiro possesses a diverse background. Kenneth is in post-production for a new opera called Dulce Rosa based on a short story by Isabel Allende and conducted by Plácido Domingo. His credits include an impressive cross section of programs such as LIVE-AID, The Academy Awards, The Grammy Awards, Stand Up 2 Cancer, Hope for Haiti, as well as serving as a director for five years on the number-one CBS hit comedy series, Everybody Loves Raymond

During this past year, The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival launched a new series entitled Classic Hollywood: EXPOSED! Hosted by our own resident reservoir of revealing rumor, Rob Davis (see below!), the series brought to light behind the scenes drama of Hollywood celebrities. Sponsored by Funding Arts Broward (FAB!), the 2013 Series included:


Remembered...Saturday, February 23, 7pm... The first of a two episode series with a tribute to the man many consider to be the world's greatest entertainer, the one and only..Al Jolson, whose career spanned 50 years of American Music history. Jolson influenced performers as Sammy Davis Jr., Elvis Presley, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Jackie Wilson and Jerry Lee Lewis all who mentioned him as an inspiration. The event began with an outdoor reception and book signing, with Jolson's daughter in-law, Victoria Jolson, on the Paradiso Patio. Victoria's autobiography, the award-winning best seller Beneath the Laughter, follows her career from a Rockette at Radio City Music Hall to the Royal National Theatre to Carnegie Hall to Nashville and finally to Beverly Hills, as wife of the son of the Al Jolson. Victoria was a popular vocalist with the Glenn Miller Band, the first American solo performer at London's Royal National Theatre (where she was honored by President Jimmy Carter) and performed as the solo command performance at Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee. The Tribute to Al Jolson featured rare film clips and little known facts about his life as an entertainer presented by Victoria and host of the evening, Chuck Prentiss, "Broadway's Ambassador to the World,"


...Sunday, May 19, 5:30pm... By popular demand, America’s Greatest Entertainer came back to Cinema Paradiso. Hosted by Charles Prentiss, this concluding episode in this two-part series with completely new show with clips never seen before.


By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There... Tuesday, May 28, 6pm... He was at the top of his game with 116 movies to his credit, including major roles in HEAT, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, BLACKHAWK DOWN, POINT BREAK and WYATT EARP...but dark days loomed ahead. Rob Davis presented a montage of Tom’s career and then interviewed him live onstage.

PROGRAM IV: SALLY KELLERMAN: Sings, Dances & Recounts...

Wednesday, July 17, 6pm... Sally Kellerman is perhaps best known for her role in Robert Altman’s MASH, as Hotlips O’Houlihan for which she was nominated for an Academy Award. Sally had 58 films including THE BOSTON STRANGLER, BREWSTER MCCLOUD, A LITTLE ROMANCE, SLITHER and LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS. What you may not have known...Sally is a triple threat as actress, singer and dancer. She was interviewed by New York film historian and author, Foster Hirsch. Following the on-stage presentation, Sally was in the Courtyard where she will posed for photos and autographed copies of her book, READ MY LIPS.


Tuesday, Aug 20, 7pm... Caroline Breder-Watts has worked in the Palm Beach County arts community for the past 25 years, joined Rob Davis for a reflective look back on one of Hollywood’s most storied stars. Clips and behind the scenes stories kept the evening enlightening.


Tuesday, Aug 27, 7pm We celebrated the centennial of composer Jerome Moross with an on-stage interview with Susanna Moross Tarjan, the composer's daughter, followed by a screening of The Big Country which featured Moross Oscar-nominated score, a composition that has influenced Western film scores ever since. As an orchestrator in Hollywood, Jerome Moross worked for Warner Bros and Samuel Goldwyn and his work can be heard in such classic films as The Drive by Night, Christmas in Connecticut, The Bishop's Wife and The Best Years of Our Lives. As a film score composer, in addition to The Big Country, some of his other scores include Huckleberry Finn, The Jayhawkers, Rachel, Rachel, Five Finger Exercise, The Proud Rebel, and Otto Preminger’s The Cardinal. In addition to his prolific work for film and television, Moross also composed for Broadway and the concert hall. Rob Davis discussed Moross's career with the composer's daughter followed by a screening of The Big Country, the 1958 classic directed by William Wyler.

director of 2009 Conference in Motion Picture Industry Studies; speaker at Alfred Hitchcock Centennial Conference, NYU, 1999; UK Conference on American Cinema, Univ. of London, 2003; moderated panel and spoke at SCS Conference, London, 2005; author of over a dozen articles and 3 book chapters on film & arts topics/personalities.
