Saving North

Saving North is the story of a struggle for human and cultural survival in the mysterious and insular world of the Russian North. An outsider from England, photographer Richard Davies, enters this mysterious and vast region of the world with the hope of documenting both the glory and the tragic demise of its rapidly disappearing Wooden Churches. As Davies meets and becomes friends with the some of his Russian photo subjects, he finds himself getting emotionally involved with their struggle. He decides to put down his camera and get involved with church restoration.

            Early on in our story Davies befriends the famed Russian architect Alexander Popov who is deeply involved in working to preserve and share with the world the beauty and value of these ancient structures. Popov has uniquely discovered and reinvigorated both the tools and processes that restore life back to the North. But it’s an uphill battle against strong and powerful forces.

            Together, Davies and Popov uncover the circumstances that led to the demise of the churches, and then join a small but growing group of passionate Russian citizens and outsiders from all walks of life who join the cause of Saving North.


Saving North to screen at Virtual Fort Lauderdale Film Festival American Indie competition

The 35th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival takes place from November 5-22, 2020. This year’s festival takes a hybrid format but still features all of your festival favorites—great films, behind-the-scenes chats with filmmakers, and parties celebrating movie magic—in a variety of venues to accommodate social distancing and keep you safe: in-theater films, drive-in movies, a boat-in event, dinner-and-a-movie at local restaurants, and virtual screenings and events online.

Let us hear from our friend: FLIFF founder and executive director Gregory von Hausch: 


How to FLiFF, 2020 Edition:

Normally, before there was a pandemic… even when we were dealing with the coming terror of Y2K, I would just say, “It’s as easy as going to the movies.”

And though it’s not rocket science, there are certain procedures to follow this year to make your FLIFFing Fun.


Almost all of the Features and Docs will have one live screening—usually, but not always—in both Savor Cinema and Cinema Paradiso.

Most, but not all, Features will be offered virtually (you can see at home). All of the Docs are offered that way, as well as the Shorts (but the Shorts are not offered at the cinemas).

We will have a couple Drive-Ins, one Boat-In and several (10?) Dinner & A Movie events at various restaurants.


We ask that you purchase tickets in advance online. This is for safety and convenience. We will avoid lines at the box-office, and as the attendance at Savor and Cinema Paradiso will be at 50% capacity (meaning 125 & 41 respectively) by mandating in advance only, you won’t journey to the cinema only to be turned away.

This goes for Dinner & A Movie, as well as The IMAX.


This one is fairly easy. Just log on at your convenience and buy your film. You will have a generous window of opportunity to view it. Some Virtual films have a limited availability window to purchase. Meaning, it may only be available for an 8-day period.


We will be selling tickets online that will include the restaurant and movie ticket charge. Once you get to the restaurant, you may elect to add drinks or whatever, and of course, you need to deal with the restaurant on that.


We will have two nights Nov 5 & 6 for Opening. The Opening Night Film, THE COMEBACK TRAIL, will be followed by a party at The River House. We are arranging for a Water Taxi to take you there and back…or you can drive. Obviously, you need to pick the night you want to attend and get your ticket. If you are a Executive Producer or Superstar member, you also must decide. Keep in mind, if you reserve and do not show, that will eliminate your chance to catch it the next night, and seriously put future reservations in jeopardy.


THE COMEBACK TRAIL will also play at CPH on Nov 5 & 6. At press time we are debating what we will do “special” at those screenings.


FLIFF will present several nights at various restaurants. You will buy your ticket in advance. Pass Holders will get the film for free, and just pay for the meal.


The documentary, FRANCESCO, will be our Centerpiece on Nov 13 at Savor and Nov 14 at CPH. As with all films, tickets are limited and we recommend you get them asap. 


The Boat-In Movie is scheduled for Saturday, Nov 14th at The Coral Ridge Yacht Club. You must be in boating position by 5:30pm at the latest. The Coast Guard will assist in getting you to your assigned square of water.


We plan to have Drive-Ins on Oct 30, Nov 7, 12, 13 & 21. Details to follow.


ANCIENT CAVES will play Sunday Nov 22, 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm at the Museum of Discovery & Science’s IMA Theater. There will be a 75 minute afterparty following each film. Please be cool and depart by the end so we can setup for the next crowd. A different color wristband will acknowledge which party you are to attend (and which you are not to).


For more on how to FLiFF from home, check out Heather’s Complete Streaming Guide: How to FLiFF Virtually


All-Access: $275 members/$300 non-member provides access to Virtual, Cinema screenings, Drive-In, Opening, Centerpiece and Closing. Does not include Boat-In.

All-Virtual: $105 members / $125 non-members provides access to Virtual screenings. Early bird discounts are available for a limited time ($75/$95)


No glossy super-cool program this year…but we will have a Virtual one that can give live updates. That’s cool!
