The Sarasota Film Festival is featuring 3 outstanding women this year. Mark Famiglio, President of the Festival said “this year’s festival is reflective of the power and strength women around the world showcase every day, and we couldn’t be happier. To have iconic and talented women such as Diane Lane, Rory Kennedy and Aisha Tyler attend the festival this year is a great honor.”
The 19th annual festival runs from March 31 – April 9 in Sarasota, Florida. Director Kennedy will be honored with the UN Women Impact Award at the festival’s Tribute Luncheon on opening day. Lane will be presented with the Sarasota Film Festival Award for Cinematic Excellence and will also participate in SFF’s “In Conversation with…” series on Saturday, April 8th at the Florida Studio Theatre.
