The festival starts in a few hours. The culmination of eight solid months of work and it will all be over in ten days. I think I am going to let the programming speak for itself (I hope you'll take a moment and look things over). Lots to do in the meantime, but I want to take a moment to thank my friends and colleagues for their amazing work in getting this boat to float. Without these people we're quite literally nothing.

    Good luck and congrats on another great lineup! I still wish I could have been there last year with my short (which played in the same program as David's "Outlaw Son," actually). I will make it down there one of these years! All best to you and Holly and the entire festival crew... Sarasota is lucky to have you!

    Best of luck, Tom! It breaks my heart that I won't be there this year. You should go introduce my film and pretend to channel me for the Q&A, a la Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost! Only without all the making out and stuff.

    Whoopi Goldberg... David Lowery... i think i've found the inspiration for my next script!
