Top Six Films to See at 2014's Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival

Just one year shy of turning the dirty 30, South Florida's long-running Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival returns this Friday.

Cinephiles can catch -- from November 7 to 23 -- screenings of anything from groundbreaking international documentaries to romantic indie films that question life's existence and even shorts hailing from faraway lands.

Aww, the beauty and magic of the silver screen. Along with a diverse lineup, a few stars will also be in attendance, like Daniel Baldwin in support of his suspense thriller The Wisdom to Know the Difference. Also on tap: George Hamilton, Clara Mamet, and producer Mike Downey.

New Times asked Gregory von Hausch, president and CEO of FLIFF, to provide his top, not-to-be-missed picks. Hausch delved deep and came back with these six, along with filling us in on what's new for the 29th-annual rendition.
