The 35th Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival’s Centerpiece film is the Florida premiere of the extraordinary documentary film Francesco. With unprecedented access to Pope Francis, Oscar and Emmy-nominated director Evgeny Afineevsky delivers a remarkable look into a leader that provides hope and inspiration during one of the most challenging times of our lives. With Pope Francis as our guide, Francesco takes an unsparing look at the most pressing issues of the 21st Century: Economic disparity, race and gender inequality, the climate crisis, COVID-19, immigration, and peace and religious tolerance. As we embark on this journey, we discover a leader who demonstrates humility, wisdom and generosity towards all, and whose ideals can help us build a bridge to a better future and thrive as a global community.

Evgeny Afineevsky will attend the premiere and participate in an audience discussion after the film. A reception will follow.
