Before heading off to Sundance on Thursday morning (and scrambling to watch as many submissions as I can before we take off), some news on The Sarasota Film Festival (March 31-April 9, 2006): We have launched our new website! Aside from the nice new design (which is a huge improvement for us), we have created MY SFF, a service that will keep you abreast of films and events and will serve as your online box office for this year’s Sarasota Film Festival. No spam, no selling the list to sponsors, just festival information and advance ticketing opportunities for users. I’m really happy with it and it is so nice to have an elegant, organized site. It just launched on Sunday, so there are still some tweaks neccessary, but we will be updating information as the festival draws closer.
Passes, event tickets, and ticket packages go on sale January 30th, the Program will be announced on March 9th at our Press Kick-off, and individual tickets go on sale March 24th.
So, y’know, no pressure to finalize everything. Cough.
Anyway, here’s the new site… Click on the image to visit!
