Since I arrived in Florida in early December, we've been hard at work watching films, talking to filmmakers and distributors while getting everything in place for the 2007 Sarasota Film Festival (April 13th through 22nd, 2007). As we begin to finalize our program, I wanted to take a moment to remind all filmmakers that we are still open for submissions until January 19th. We look forward to receiving your films and considering them for our program.
For those not familiar with our festival, some thoughts from last year's event:

This year promises to be another year of growth and a wonderful opportunity for filmmakers to share their films with terrific audiences, the industry, and other artists. I hope you can join us, but first, I look forward to seeing your film.
We now return to regular blogging...
