Sarasota Film Festival announces a few events

Actor Frank Langella (second from left)
greeted film lovers on the red carpet last year.

If you're a film buff, you probably already have know that the 15th annual Sarasota Film Festival is scheduled for April.5-14. What you may not know (because it's only recently been announced) is that the box office will open March 15. The lineup of films is going to be announced two days earlier.

A couple of events have already been announced though. There's an Opening Night Film Party set for Van Wezel Hall at 777 N. Tamiami Trail, starting with the red carpet at 6 p.m.m a film at 7 p.m. and the party itself starting at 9 p.m. Last year professional wrestlers were on the red carpet, which for some reason the film festival people thought was really cool, and the Flying Wallenda Family performed were overhead, which actually is kinda cool..Organizers have't announced what they'll have in store for this year.

Also, Cinema Tropicale, the annual island-themed party, is set for 8:30 p.m. April 12 at the Sarasota Yacht Club, 100 Ringling Blvd.

The box office will again be at the Regal Hollywood 20 Cinema at 1993 Main St. in downtown Sarasota

There's not much more information available right now, but sarasotafilmfestival.com has the latestdetails
