Submit Now: The 13th Annual Sarasota Film Festival

The Sarasota Film Festival, which takes place April 7-17th on Florida’s pristine southern Gulf Coast, is now accepting entries for its 2011 edition. The Sarasota Film Festival is the largest festival by attendance in the southeastern United States, and always features a broad and diverse selection of new cinema, including narratives, documentaries and short films, from the US and around the globe. The festival has a number of competitive sections, including documentary and international narrative competitions, as well as an Independent Visions Competition specifically for low budget films by emerging American directors.

Some of the festival’s award winners in 2010 included THE OATH, GASLAND, TINY FURNITURE, WINTER’S BONE, A BRAND NEW LIFE and COLD WEATHER.

Press and industry guests in recent years have included representatives from IFC Films, Sony Pictures Classics, Film Movement, First Run Features, Fortissimo Films, BAMcinematek, Film Desk, GQ Magazine, Vanity Fair, USA Today, Indiewire, Variety, Filmmaker Magazine, The Huffington Post, Hammer To Nail, and others.
