The Sarasota Film Festival (SFF) announced today the full slate of programming for the 25th anniversary edition of the festival, taking place in-person across Sarasota March 25 through April 2, 2023, with complementary virtual programming to open March 24. The festival is set to open on Saturday, March 25 with a screening of Dawn Porter’s Cirque Du Soleil: Without a Net at The Circus Arts Conservatory in Sarasota with a reception to follow. The film offers a behind-the-scenes look into "O", Cirque's flagship production, on its journey back after the COVID-19 pandemic. The world famous production will also celebrate its grand 25th anniversary later this year, solidifying the show’s remarkable success. “I am thrilled to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Sarasota Film Festival this year with a robust slate of films from an internationally renowned group of artists,” said Mark Famiglio, SFF Chairman and Board President. “We at SFF feel so proud to commemorate a quarter of a century of bringing dynamic lineups of films to the beautiful Florida Gulf Coast and the arts-loving community that calls it home.
