SFF today announced that the Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County would sponsor the youthFest event on April 21. This is the first time the Alliance is partnering with SFF for the film component of the education event.
The SFF Education Department will curate a one-hour short film program and show it several times that day at the Selby Public Library. The films will come from several local programs, including Kids Reel Life Studio, Reel Life Studio and See Jane Studio at SFF. All films will be G-rated.
“This partnership represents a big step for YouthArts Fest. The Sarasota Film Festival and its Education Department have developed a tremendous national reputation for excellence. It is a special honor for the young artists of our community to be recognized for their accomplishments in such a prestigious event and for YouthArts Fest to be able to help showcase their work to the public,” said Jim Shirley, Executive Director of the Arts and Cultural Alliance.
