Sarasota Film Festival Preview: Launch

Sarasota Film Festival Preview: Launch

When I started this post, I looked at the clock and we’re less than 24 hours from the start of the Sarasota Film Festival. So much has been accomplished in the run-up to 7:00pm tomorrow when we take our seats at the Van Wezel and In The Shadow Of The Moon knocks everyone’s socks off. It’s going to be a great and exhausting ten days. There is so much I haven’t been able to write about in the build-up, from Michelle Trachtenberg and Steve Buscemi to our the films themselves, which are a pretty great group of movies. I’m not even going to stick my baby toe in this whole attempt to name and define a generation of independent filmmakers, but suffice it to say that we have an amazing group of artists attending the festival and it is my goal to show them a great time and help spread the word about their wonderful films.

I am going to bed early, resting up for the marathon that lies ahead, and I probably won’t be able to do much blogging this year (but hey, ya never know). So, until next time (at which point I begin shameless and effusive gushing over the festival if all goes according to plan), keep the festival in your thoughts and I hope to see you here, your butt in a theater seat, some popcorn in hand, enjoying one of the 210 films unspooling in the next ten days. It’s going to be great. Fingers and toes crossed…
