NOTE: Event Venue changed to Cinebistro
If you can make it to the in-person Opening Night screening, we invite you to come and hang out on the red carpet with SFF fans, get a drink at the beautiful CineBistro bar, and enjoy a meal as you lounge in a luxurious armchair and watch our Opening Film, which is a look at the life and work of Rita Moreno from her humble beginnings in Puerto Rico to her success on Broadway and in Hollywood.
The film is also available as a virtual screening.
100 Years From Mississippi is a 60 minute documentary on the life of Mamie Lang Kirkland, a 111-year old African American woman who experienced and survived racial terrorism, segregation, bigotry and bias and yet continued to have hope, joy and love of life, full of the certainty that we can do better.
Sarasota Film Festival is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema.
