Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival Hosts Oscars Watch Party

Space is limited and advance purchase of tickets is required.

The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) is preparing to host an extravagant celebration for the 96th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 10. The Awards Watch Party: A Celebration Under the Stars event promises to be an exciting evening of fashion, music, and fun while honoring cinematic creativity. The festivities will commence at 6:30 p.m. at Savor Cinema, 503 SE 6th St. in Fort Lauderdale. In addition to a live stream of the awards show on the 30-foot screen of the theatre, the courtyard in front of Savor Cinema will be cordoned off. The area will feature jumbo viewing screens, an open bar, lavish hors d’oeuvres, seating arrangements for comfort, and three live bands to provide entertainment.

The event has been made possible partly due to the goodwill of Steven Savor, Robinson’s Jewelers, Jeff Olson, the Harold & Shirley Robinson Foundation, and Kerwell. Tickets cost $100 for FLiFF members and $125 for general admission. Attendees can enjoy complimentary valet parking or free parking in the courthouse garage on SE 5th Avenue, adjacent to the theater. For tickets and details, go to Fliff.com/events/fliffawardsparty/ or call (954) 525-3456.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
