In partnership with The Ringling College Of Art + Design, The Sarasota Film Festival presents our 2nd Annual Student Trailer Contest. This year's contest was designed to have students conduct interviews with film lovers to discover what it is about the movies that inspires them. 

Voting is now closed. Thanks for participating! All eight finalists will be screened throughout this year's festival, but FEELM by Javier Aparente and Yahira Hernandez gathered the most votes, earning the honor of screening on Opening Night at the Van Wezel on Friday, April 13, 2012 and Closing Night on Saturday, April 21st at the Sarasota Opera House. Help us celebrate the wonderful creative work of these students by joining us throughout The 14th Annual Sarasota Film Festival.

Thank you Ringling College of Art + Design and faculty advisor Ed Cheetham.
