This year we celebrate our 20th Anniversary of the Sarasota Film Festival. The 10-day festival will showcase 90 features, 131 shorts and will take place in Downtown Sarasota from April 13 – 22, 2018.
Our In Conversation With series features in-depth interviews with Eric Stoltz whose award-winning feature Class Rank will open the SFF, Oscar-nominated Virginia Madsen, seasoned actor Steve Guttenberg and Academy Award-nominated director, producer and philanthropist Rory Kennedy.
The educational program will expand this year with the introduction of the 20 Hour Film Contest. As in our past festivals, we continue to provide programming of, by, and for students within the Sarasota-Manatee region.
This year’s special edition poster was designed by local Kelsey Hunt-Dolan, a graduate of New College of Florida. The iconic statue of David, which serves as the city’s official symbol and the Roman numerals “XX” on the poster commemorates the 20 year anniversary of the festival.
