As one awards season ends, another begins, and with that, we look forward to the upcoming film festivals that will be launching pads for many filmmakers and performers. Sarasota Film Festival, founded in 1996, has shared its 2020 poster exclusively with

Festival Chairman and Co-Founder Mark Famiglio shared his thoughts on the poster:

“As the film industry matures over the last many years, it becomes increasingly important that we recognize the vision and spirit of filmmakers who have allowed us to better understand our own lives and the global condition with more clarity,” said Chairman and Co-Founder of the Festival Mark Famiglio. “This year the SFF vision poster represents the simplicity of text and yet underscores the complexity of our social dynamics and communication within the U.S.  and around the world, demonstrating various and many dimensions to this poster just has there are many dimensions to a seemingly simple film.”

Last year, the festival opened with the critically acclaimed documentary “Mike Wallace Is Here” and closed with Greg Kinnear’s directorial debut “Phil.” You can read our coverage of last year’s festivities here.

With no official announcements on this year’s slate yet, the festival will be running from March 27 to April 5, where our very own Mark Johnson will be serving on the Jury.
