Cinema Paradiso Releasing (CPR) is the distribution arm of The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. Our catalog consists of primarily foreign language film. We specialize in securing the rights to show the films in film festival or on-going film society programs.

From the foreign filmmaker's perspective, it allows their film the opportunity to play USA screens without winning distribution from a major or boutique distributor.

CPR hosts an annual soiree at the Cannes Film Festival to meet foreign filmmakers and distributors.

No money changes hands until CPR books a film. At that time the producers receive 60% of the gross.

CPR handles all shipping and press materials.
