The Sarasota Film Festival

The Sarasota Film Festival attracts audiences from local, national and international markets. The Festival's mission is to present unique and quality cinema for the purpose of educating, stimulating and entertaining audiences. As a year round presenting arts organization we produce frequent independent and celebrity studded studio screenings and the annual film festival. With quality cinema, filmmaker symposiums, gala parties and educational opportunities the festival has positioned itself as one of the finest in the country.

The Sarasota Film Festival was founded in 1998 as a non-profit arts organization designed to offer a balanced program of foreign, domestic, independent and studio films that engage the commercial film industry and local audiences. In 1999, SFF’s first annual mini-festival included eight feature films, symposiums and a gala fundraiser.

In 2000, The Film Festival added documentary, animated, short & student films and the inaugural KIDSFEST program. Recognized as a driver for economic development and tourism in only its second year, festival organizers strengthened its impact in the community by utilizing the medium of film to advance media literacy and bring exposure to social service organizations.

SFF offers programming and events for film enthusiasts of all economic, cultural and educational backgrounds. With the support of a passionate arts community, the Sarasota Film Festival attracts the best filmmakers, today's hottest stars, distinguished industry guests, and thousands of film enthusiasts from around the world.
