For nearly two decades, the Sarasota Film Festival has maintained its position as one of the leading tastemakers and trailblazers of the global film community, while advancing Sarasota’s own legacy of excellence in the arts and education. Each year, we welcome an unprecedented volume and diversity of cinema (over 250 films last year), as well as some of the most acclaimed and burgeoning actors, directors, screenwriters, and musicians of our time.
Join us for FREE family-friendly movies under the stars on our beautiful Sarasota County beaches and parks. Bring your beach chairs and blankets, and we’ll bring the fun. Who needs a red carpet when you have the best beaches in the world!
The Sarasota Film Festival's Moonlight Movies have returned for the 2016-17 season. All of these gatherings are free and open to the public, thanks to our generous sponsors. Films begin at sunset, unless specific time is indicated. Don't forget to bring your own chairs! Be sure to follow our Facebook page for any important changes or updates.
Our Volunteer coordinator Marlene Baldeweg-Rau writes a special feature on Volunteers every other week. This week, our Volunteer Spotlight is on Tommy Vu! Find out more about him in the article here. Volunteers like him are an essential part of SFF of what makes our festival so great, and we are proud to have them on our team!
