Grand Isle Resort & Spa

The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) will travel to Grand Isle Resort & Spa on Great Exuma, Bahamas for an enjoyable weekend of film showings, taking place July 4 – 7 to celebrate the arts. The FLIFF Exuma Film Festival is Pigs of Paradise’s third stop in the world tour, which began in Cannes in May and concludes with London in September.
