The In Conversation With series features in-depth interviews with iconic Hollywood artists led by a member of the national press. Join us for a unique opportunity to learn from and experience the contemporary architects of cinema first-hand.
As an actress known for her naturalistic performances and for mining the depths of complex characters with honesty and ease, SFF alumni Jena Malone has captivated audiences for over 25 years with her work in films spanning from acclaimed indies such as “In Our Nature”, “Time Out Of Mind”, and “Lorelei” (all of which played prior editions of SFF) to blockbusters like Zack Snyder’s “Sucker Punch” and “The Hunger Games” series. Equally as at home in cult favorites such as “Donnie Darko” and “Saved!” as she is in Oscar® contenders like Sean Penn’s “Into The Wild” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice”, Jena will discuss her decades-spanning career starting with her performance in Angelica Huston’s “Bastard Out Of Carolina” all the way through to her work in SFF’s 2022 Opening Night Film: “Porcupine”.
Sarasota Film Festival is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema.
