The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization supporting independent film and cultural arts throughout Florida from Key West to St. Augustine.  I was lucky enough to be sent some screeners for some of the alternative movies playing during the film festival and below are 2 movies I would suggest seeing. You can find info about all the movies being shown at FLIFF.com “Amancio” will be playing on Friday, November 6th at 5 pm.  Every time I get screeners for a film festival there is always one movie that reaches out and tugs at my soul. For FLIFF that movie was Amancio. As a young boy, Amancio Corrales emigrated from Mexico to Yuma, Arizona with his parents in search of a better life. Gay and Hispanic, Amancio dreamed of one day being a performer in Las Vegas, but his dream was cut short on May 6, 2005 when Amancio’s body was found floating in the Colorado River near Yuma. The 23 years old had been brutally beaten and stabbed. For the first time, the story of one man’s journey to seek justice for the murder on behalf of Amancio’s family and friends is revealed in this intriguing documentary. Attending the screening are Director Tom Murray and Producer Bruce Presley.

 

“Audience With The Queens” will be playing on Friday, November 6th at 9:15 pm. Robbie Hopcraft directs a dazzling film about the lives and experiences of drag queens, onstage and off. But these are not just any drag queens—in “Audience with the Queens,” Hopcraft features a very talented and diverse group of cross-dressing queens who perform at the 801 Cabaret Club in Key West, Florida. Starring in the documentary is Sushi, Gugi Gomez, Samantha Woodward, RV Beaumont, Destiny and Gassy Winds.  Attending the screening is Director Robbie Hopcraft and members of the cast.

All of these movies will be showing at Cinema Paradiso, 503 SE 6 Street, Fort Lauderdale Admission is $10 general admission, $8 seniors and students and $6 for FLIFF Members.  Details and advance tickets are available at FLIFF.com or by calling 954-525-3456
