Not a lot of them…pretty simple: 1) Turn off your cellphones during the film. 2) Don’t even text in the theatre during the film…its annoying…and risk being stigmatized as a jerk for the rest of your natural days. Failure to heed may result in banishment. 3) Can’t abide by those two…please just stay home and watch television. 4) Also, no videotaping during film (everyone knows that). 5) Be courteous to other members of the audience…and sure, while we’re at it, the staff and volunteers too! 6) Please help us keep theater clean in between movies by using the bins when leaving. Thanks to our friends at HEAL THE PLANET, reusable water bottles just $2.

Radha Mitchell (born 12 November 1973) is an Australian actress. She started her career acting in various Australian TV series and movies, and later became known for her appearance in Hollywood films. Mitchell, a native of Melbourne, began acting when she was still in high school and had her professional debut on the popular Australian soap, Neighbours in 1994. Two years later, she made her film debut in the romantic comedy LOVE AND OTHER CATASTROPHES, in which she starred as a college student experiencing a messy breakup. The film proved to be fairly popular in Australia, but it wasn't until she was cast in HIGH ART that Mitchell gained an introduction to a wider audience. The critical success of HIGH ART made it possible for her to do more international
work, and her increasing popularity was reflected by her subsequent casting in a number of projects. Among them were PITCH BLACK, a sci-fi horror film in which Mitchell played a pilot whose ship crashes on a hostile planet, and EVERYTHING PUT TOGETHER, a drama where she plays a suburban woman shunned by her peers after the death of her baby. Her career continued with a diverse run of films, including NOBODY'S BABY, MAN ON FIRE, FINDING NEVERLAND, and landing the lead in Woody Allen's Melinda and Melinda. Those last three films all hit the screens in 2004, she kept working steadily. Her other credits include SILENT HILL, HENRY POOLE IS HERE, SURROGATES and THE CRAZIES.

WILLIAM GREFE H MR. FLORIDA FILM
Born May 17, 1930 at Biscayne Blvd. and 75th Street in Miami, William “Bill” Grefe' is the son of the illustrator, Will Grefe'. The first time Bill was onstage was during WW II, at age 12. Bill’s sister, Bun, drafted him to participate in a U.S.O. show entertaining soldiers on leave from the combat zone doing their R&R in Miami. He wrote, directed and acted in a one act play about soldiers, as a kid at Morningside Elementary in Miami. Bill went to Miami Edison High School and loved being in theatre classes and plays. He entered the Florida State Dramatic Contest and memorized the entire play and changed his personality to portray all six characters. This performance gave him the first-place award for the entire State. He won second place nationally. Bill was sure theatre or something pertaining to his imagination would be in his future. After High School he did summer stock at the Maverick Theatre in Woodstock New York with another young actor, Lee Marvin. His acting career was cut short by the Korean War. Bill joined the Navy. He also married and gave up the dream of becoming an actor. Following the war, the new family man joined the Miami Fire Department where he turned his dramatic dreams into writing screenplays. He wrote six (6) screenplays and registered them. Bill finally sold a script “The Checkered Flag”. Bill took a thirty (30) day vacation to be on the set for rewrites. The first day of filming at Sebring for the car races – the film’s director had a nervous breakdown. Bill was drafted by the Producer to Direct “The Checkered Flag”. Fortunately, the movie made money and was a success. Bill quit the Fire Department. When he thinks back now on giving up the security of working a steady job and realizes it was insane. However, his wife, Grace stood by him with this decision and he credits her for giving him the confidence to make that move, especially with three young children. Bill went on to a career in filmmaking and they never really looked back. As Castro gained power in Cuba, much of the island’s filmmaking community transplanted to Miami, including producer/director, Joe Rodero, who hired Bill to be an actor in his film, “Beatrice”. His crew consisted of six crew members, all of whom were Cuban. Bill was impressed that you could make a quality
film with a small crew. Bill wrote, produced and directed “Racing Fever”. hiring several members of the Cuban film community. “Racing Fever” turned out the be the first independent film shot in Florida to get major distribution by Allied Artists. Bill has always been a champion for filming in Florida and introduced many NY and LA producers to all the State had to offer. Bill is proud to be one of the first directors to give women and minorities, positions in an industry that was dominated by men. He was one of the first directors to use a female first assistant director (Adrienne Bourbeau) in the film “Whiskey Mountain” in 1977. Throughout his film career, Bill wore a series of “hats”. If he thought something was dangerous, he would be the one to sink in the quicksand (instead of the camera man), film scenes under water with sharks in “Sting of Death”, along with dangerous snakes for close up shots. He earned the nickname “Wild Bill”, by his cast and crew. Actors who have been directed in films made by Bill include William Shatner, Rita Hayworth, Mickey Rooney, Cliff Robertson, Don Johnson, Richard Jaeckel, among others. Bill has been invited twice by Quentin Tarantino’s New Beverly Cinema, highlighting Bill’s Florida Films to Los Angeles audiences. From his independent film career, Ivan Tors selected him to become President of Ivan Tors Studio, famous for television series such as “Flipper” and “Gentle Ben”. Over a dozen of Bill’s films have been released worldwide. He has been written about in magazine articles l in France, England and Germany. It has also led to several of his films being released in different languages. He has been a speaker at the Cannes Film Festival, the Nice TV Festival and even spoke to audiences in Romania. He has given speeches across the nation. His service to the Film Community include volunteering three times on the Florida Governor’s advisory council. He was nominated to serve as Chairman of the Directors Guild of America committee. To this day, Bill enjoys working with young filmmakers and still keeps active in the Film Business.

production of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", Pantoliano moved to California to pursue television and film acting.

Director: Many moons ago, Linda Corley and Joel Kaplan met and began collaborating on a multitude of national projects for Public Television.

From the depths of Japan’s verdant bamboo forests to the dazzling beaches of Brazil, the two worked in concert to produce award-winning broadcast productions. Seventeen Emmy awards later, Kaplan and Corley decided it was time to create their own company Daydream Productions so they could concentrate on thoughtful documentaries that ignite imaginations and inspire change.

Justine Triet France / 2019 / 100 min / French w/English subtitles / Comic-Drama
Sibyl, a jaded psychotherapist, returns to her first passion: writing. But her newest patient Margot, a troubled up-and-coming actress, proves to be a source of inspiration that is far too tempting. Fascinated almost to the point of obsession, Sibyl becomes more and more involved in Margot’s tumultuous life, reviving volatile memories that bring her face to face with her past. The film is alternately hysterical, moving and shocking. Starring Virginie Efira, the film premiered in competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Ms. Efira won FLIFF’s Best Actress Award in 2016 for her two starring roles in THE SENSE OF WONDER and IN BED WITH VICTORIA. The audience at Cannes gave a six-minute standing ovation to Ms. Triet and Ms. Elfira.

THE DIRECTOR: Justine Triet is a graduate from the Paris National School of Fine Arts. Since then, she has directed a couple of films dealing with the place of the individual within a group: Sur place was shot right in the middle of the 2006 student protest; SOLFÉRINO was filmed during the 2007 French presidential election; in her next effort, TWO SHIPS, Justine Triet gave a startling account of life in a São Paulo shantytown and garnered many awards in the festival circuit. Her first feature, AGE OF PANIC is a skillful mix of a documentary (five years after SOLFÉRINO, she records the second ballot of the French elections for President live in the streets of Paris) and fiction (the crisis experienced on that very day by a divorced couple). AGE OF PANIC has been acclaimed by most critics as one of the best works of the latest new wave of French directors.

CHASING THE JET STREAM follows the pioneering adventure of Marc Hauser, a Swiss entrepreneur and motivational speaker who wants to become the first skydiver in the world jumping into a hurricane force jet stream at 8,000 to 10,000 meters altitude. With this record, Marc wants to bring attention to the nascent technology of airborne wind energy systems, which can harness high-altitude wind power. This new technology has the potential to defuse the global energy crisis.
Producer: Claudio von Planta / Cinematography: Claudio von Planta, Tom Naef (aerial) / Editors: Claudio von Planta, Jonathan Richards, Oli da Costa / Composer: Jacob Klotz / Featuring: Marc Hauser / Contact: email@example.com Sponsored by
Director: Claudio (photo right) discovered his passion for docs in 1985 filming Afghans fighting against the Russian occupation - a brutal but effective start of a freelance career.
As a Swiss Claudio got inspired by a history of more than 700 years independence and was always wondering what it takes for oppressed populations to win freedom. REBELS OF THE FORGOTTEN WORLD about the Papuan independence struggle against Indonesia, was his TV doc. NO FRIENDS BUT THE MOUNTAINS (THE KURDISH DREAM) is his latest film about the struggle to win self-determination in the Kurdish region of Iraq.
Fortunately, Claudio also had a chance to cover non-political stories. His lucky break with expedition filming came as director of photography on LONG WAY ROUND and LONG WAY DOWN where he followed the actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman on motorbike journeys around the world and across Africa. In 2011 he filmed RACING GREEN, a BBC World TV series about the first electric car driving the full length of the Pan-American Highway from Alaska to Argentina. CHASING THE JET STREAM is following the same genre looking at high-altitude wind power.

Over a week, Delfín wakes up early every morning to go to work, falls asleep in class, goes fishing frogs with friends, spies on a young teacher for whom he feels a fascination that can hardly understand, and in the absence of his dad faces again and again the collector who threatens an imminent eviction. But above all things, Delfín wants to participate in a Children's Orchestra that is being formed in a neighboring village. His ageing music teacher taught him to play the French horn, and Delfín will do the impossible to show up for the audition. This will mean an adventure for him and also for his father.

Hank Levine USA-Germany / 2019 / 76 min / English & German w/English subtitles / Documentary
Dialogue Earth offers us a moving portrait of the German artist Ulrike Arnold who paints with earth and meteorites from remote areas all around the world, and now travels through archaic, mystical landscapes in the American Southwest, especially the wilderness of southern Utah. Her encounters with old friends and farewells to others who have passed away and the spirituality that Eli Secody of the Navajo Tribe finds in her paintings lead us to contemplate her legacy and why her upbringing has led her to undergo a lifelong journey of seeking.
Exhibiting her work at White Pocket in the Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness on the day Trump announces his executive order permitting the dismantlement of national monuments, she recognizes that this special landscape is in danger from mining and oil exploration.
Visiting the US-Mexican border with artist friend Peter Young, she reveals her plans for her next work: To unite for the very first time in one painting earth colors from all the places she has visited over the past 40 years, to create a visual expression of the diversity of the continents and their peoples, as an articulation of unity, equality, peace and harmony.
This statement for the preservation and protection of our unique planet Earth is the One World Painting, a giant exclamation mark, scheduled to be exhibited for the 50 the anniversary of Earth Day April 22nd, 2020.

Driven to Abstraction unravels a mutating tale of self-delusion, greed, and fraud-- the $80 million forgery scandal that rocked the art world and brought down Knoedler, New York City’s oldest and most venerable gallery. Was the gallery’s esteemed director the victim of a con artist who showed up with an endless treasure trove of previously unseen abstract expressionist masterpieces? Or did she eventually suspect they were fakes, yet continue to sell them for millions of dollars for fifteen years? Whatever the truth, two women from very different worlds crossed paths in what would become the greatest hoax ever of Modern American Art.

Bob Byington USA / 2018 / 75 min / English / Comedy
FRANCES FERGUSON, the eponymously named character at the center of Bob Byington’s new film, is discontent. Like a lot of us, she does a bit of “acting out” and pays the price —an arrest, a trial, incarceration. And then a new identity, one that’s not terribly comfortable. Nick Offerman narrates this deviant comedy, based on actual events.
Kaley Wheless is spot-on with a deadpan, couldn’t be bothered less attitude that is a scream. Nick Offerman compliments it matter of factly, with even less enthusiasm that Tom Bodette doing a Motel 6 voice-over. One of the funniest films of FLIFF2019.

"The Land" is their fifth production. Like all of their films, except for the acting (which neither of them has any desire to do!), virtually every single task required to make "The Land" was performed by one or both of them. Working exclusively with extremely tiny crews of between four and five people (including themselves!), this completely hands-on "auteur approach" is perhaps unique for a filmmaking couple of their ages (Mary is 58 and Stephen is 62).

Juan Villegas Argentina / 2019 / 75 min / Spanish w/English subtitles / Comedy
Martín and Laura, in their thirties, find themselves spending time in the same building for a summer side holiday. An opportunity for Martín and Laura to find each other again, and perhaps to truly meet with the son they had together 18 years ago

DIRECTOR: Juan Villegas was born in 1971 in Buenos Aires. Saturday (2001) is his first film as director. Before he had written the script for Modelo 73 (2000) and worked in other films as address assistant and camera assistant. The pleasure for the circular and speedy dialogues, certain preference to show a slight fatality in couple's relationships, the cars like places where the actions insist on happening, the humor and the sadness, they are already some of the constants of his cinema reflected in the two previous films shorts: 2 en 1 auto (1998) and Rutas and veredas (1995).

THE LAST PIG
AMERICAN INDIE DOCUMENTARY
Allison Argo USA / 2017 / 54 min / English / Documentary
THE LAST PIG is an achingly beautiful meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Deeply immersive and experiential, the film follows a pig farmer through his final year of slaughtering pigs. The bucolic life of the pigs on the farm is ruptured by weekly trips to the slaughterhouse. Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals his growing conflict of a life spent “peddling in death.”

SCREAM, QUEEN! MY NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
Roman Chimienti, Tyler Jensen USA / 2019 / 100 min / English / Documentary
At the time of release, The Advocate dubbed 1985’s A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge the gayest horror film ever made. For the film’s closeted young star, Mark Patton, such a tag was a stark reminder about the homophobia rampant in Hollywood at the time—and the painful experience he had making the high-profile film and living through the polarizing critical aftermath. This new documentary highlights Patton’s time in the horror spotlight, and Patton sets the record straight about the controversial sequel, which ended his acting career just as it was about to begin. SCREAM, QUEEN! MY NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET follows Patton as he travels to horror conventions across the U.S. Each new city unwraps a chapter from his life that is met with equal parts joyful and bittersweet detail, as he attempts to make peace with his past and embrace his legacy as cinema’s first male “scream queen.”
SCREAM, QUEEN! also finds Patton confronting the Freddy’s Revenge cast and crew for the first time, including co-stars Robert Rusler, Kim Myers and Clu Gulager, as well as Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund. The film also discusses Freddy’s Revenge’s status as an LGBTQ cult classic, and illustrates how the career turbulence experienced by Patton—whose résumé includes stints on Broadway and a regarded role in the 1982 film Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean—wasn’t out of the ordinary for the time. “There were plenty of gay actors like me,” says Patton. “They starred in one movie and just disappeared. A whole generation just vanished.” Producers: Roman Chimienti, Tyler Jensen / Cinematographers: Amber Grey, Julian Bernstein, Mark Zemel, Tyler Jensen / Editor: Tyler Jensen / Featuring: Mark Patton, Robert Englund, Robert Rusler, Kim Myers, Clu Gulager / Contact: email@example.com Directors; Roman Chimienti, The End Audio is the production name of sound engineer, Roman Chimienti.

Between 1960 and 1962, 14,000 children were exfiltrated from Cuba. A movement of general panic seized middle-class Cuban parents, who sent their children en masse to the United States, hoping to subsequently join them there. The panic was caused by a carefully orchestrated rumor, claiming that Fidel Castro intended to “Nationalise“ Cuban children. Unfortunately, the Cuban Missile Crisis of December 1962 got in the way, and the borders closed like a trap on the families, preventing them from being reunited. Spread out all over the U.S., very few children ever saw their parents again.
This film tells the story of a spectacular operation of manipulation led by the CIA in an attempt to overthrow the Castro government: Operation Peter Pan.

SOUTHEAST PREMIERE Alex Thompson USA / 2019 / 101 min / English / Bittersweet Comedy
OFFICIAL SELECTION 2019
At the start of the summer, Bridget has an abortion just as she lands a much-needed job in an affluent Chicago suburb - nannying six-year old Frances (played by the scenestealing Ramona Edith-Williams). With no time to recover, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances’ moms. As her personal relationships suffer, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and barnacles of becoming a part of someone else’s family.
Conflict works best with a heavy dose of comedy.

Having devoted his life to helping the less fortunate, Fr. Rene Robert was regarded as a "living saint" in the tight-knit community of St. Augustine, Florida. But when Fr. Rene began helping ex-convicts get their lives together after prison, the people closest to him worried that he was putting his life at risk—especially the local sheriff, David Shoar, one of Fr. Rene’s longtime friends.
So, in April, 2016, when Fr. Rene failed to show up at a church service, Sheriff Shoar immediately put his best detectives on the case and local residents joined in searching for the beloved priest. It quickly became apparent, however, that Fr. Rene was not just missing—someone had taken him against his will.
True crime documentary WHERE THERE IS DARKNESS follows the nationwide search for Fr. Rene, which resulted in a series of shocking revelations and the discovery of a 20-year-old letter in which Fr. Rene seemed to foretell his own fate.

Michael Wadleigh USA / 1970 / 186 min / English / Documentary
It was 1969. I had just hitchhiked from Fort Lauderdale to New York City, for my very first time in the Big Apple. On my 3rd night , while prowling nomadically through the canyons, I stumbled upon a bar, The Triple Inn, on 54th Street. I was almost 20, and the drinking age was 18. I met a dazzling, young, seemingly affluent 19-year-old, who, over the course of the evening, invited me to join her on a trip to upstate New York to go to a rock concert. I was charmed, but passed as I was instantly enamored with New York, New York, and after three and a half days on the road with no sleep, another road trip was not on my bucket list.
Of course, this country rock concert turned out to be Woodstock, and though I did not attend, the impact of this Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music, affected me and an entire generation. The impact of the film, made it possible for millions to experience the beauty, the mud, the peace, love, happiness and misery of 400,000 people, miles from nowhere, many, most with no resources, except a half of six-pack of warm beer, some grass, and hopefully not the â€œBrown Acidâ€?.
WOODSTOCK the film is a brilliant documentary that captured not only the music, but the madness and the heroes. The film cost $600K to make and IMDb says it grossed $321K, I find that hard to believe, but if true, it is a perfect parallel to the promoters of the concert, who rather quickly realized that the fences they erected as businessmen to funnel the audience through the turnstiles, were creating more pandemonium. They quickly decided to tear down the fencing and make WOODSTOCK a free event.

FounDinG SPonSor BroWArD CulTurAl CounCil
As the Chair of the Broward Cultural Council, I have the honor of being part of the most vital cultural mission Broward County has. This mission is making sure that everything we do is focused on developing the Broward arts scene. While the scene is broad and varied, film is the art form that provides a platform of international communication that transcends language, culture, geography and religion. Therefore, we feel truly privileged to provide ongoing support for November’s Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF), with over $4 million dollars in funding since 1995. The Festival’s presence in Broward County helps us complete our mission of cultivating the arts locally by providing a competitive and distinguished platform for film. This is one of the many reasons why we are also thrilled to again support Savor Cinema’s annual Filmed In Broward film festival, a July weekend event which screens multiple genres of films, all of which were shot right here in Broward County. The nostalgia factor is not just popcorn-worthy. It provides us with a remarkable opportunity, the honor to showcase the talents of filmmakers, actors, writers and other artists who chose our home to tell their stories. We are looking forward to seeing these local winners compete at the international level this November at FLIFF.
Jodi Jeffreys-Tanner, Chair Broward Cultural Council BROWARD.ORG/ARTS
FLIFF has spent over 34 years dedicated to promoting the arts in Broward County, and I am honored that we pay homage to them each year.
Thank you for joining me in supporting FLIFF and Savor Cinema’s fantastic events while celebrating the impact they bring our community. I look forward to seeing you there!
