Road to Redemption

Tonight marks the official final night of the 2009 Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival at Cinema Paradiso. Technically, November 8 was the closing night and wrap party, but it was also the night the jury got together, fiercely debated in the way only true film aficionados (read film geeks) can, and came up with the five best films of the festival, which will play today. Unfortunately the New Times crystal ball is currently broken, so we can’t tell you which films will be showing, but with so many amazing films like Black Dynamite, Beyond The Pole, Best Ribs In Town, and A Matter of Size all showing during FLIFF, tonight’s selections are certainly going to represent some of the finest cinema you’ll see this year. Chances are you haven’t been a good enough cinemaphile these last couple weeks and missed more than a couple screenings, so tonight is your chance to become a good upstanding member of art-supporting society. A new film will be shown every two hours or so (depending on the length of the films selected) starting at noon. Visit fliff.com for the finalized line-up, or call 954-525-3456, or just show up to Cinema Paradiso: 503 S.E. 6th St. in Fort Lauderdale.
