FLIFF: 27th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival Sneak Peek

Are ya bored with all the Oscar starved blockbusters? Does the idea of sitting through a post-'80s Stallone movie make you queasy? Are you over it a little with that cute little bastard Nemo? Well lucky for you, fellow movie snobs, the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival -- or FLIFF as we all know and love it -- is returning once again from October 19 to November 11.

The month-long film extravaganza takes place at three separate theaters: Cinema Paradiso in Fort Lauderdale, the Sunrise Civic Center Theater, and Muvico Broward18 in Pompano. However, CP, the fest's perennial home, is ground zero for FLIFF. The eagerly anticipated fest so defines this locale, that even though the art house theater is open year round, screening new, classic, and indie films, it uses FLIFF.com as its web address.

The official lineup hasn't even been announced. But New Times managed to obtain insider info on five films that will be part of FLIFF's 2012 offerings.

There's still have about a month to go before the kick off evening, so many of the details are still T.B.D. General admission is $10, $8 for seniors and

students, and $6 for FLIFF members. The accompanying events, parties,

and receptions will be priced separately.

Enjoy the show!
