The festival’s lineup of films opens April 5 with a screening of Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s documentary “Blackfish,” about a captive killer whale in Orlando that killed its trainer, and ends April 15 with Noah Baumbach's “Frances Ha,” an acclaimed comedy about a would-be dancer whose dreams clash with reality.
The festival’s box office opens at 11 a.m. Friday, March 15 at the Regal Hollywood 20, 1993 Main St., Sarasota. Tickets and the complete schedule of films and events are available at www.sarasotafilmfestival.com.
