"The Tomorrow Man," starring Blythe Danner and John Lithgow, will be the festival's Centerpiece film.
Because this year’s festival will begin one week before the Florida Film Festival, Orlando cinephiles will be able to attend the first few days of the Sarasota Film Festival before returning for our city’s premier film event.
