Today’s The Day

Backlot readers,

The Sarasota Film Festival starts today, and nobody is more revved up about that than the team at SRQ Backlot, SRQ Media Group’s dedicated film festival blog. We hope you will come here throughout the 11-day event (it runs April 5-14) to see what’s happening throughout the event.

We will be interviewing filmmakers about their films, publishing photographs from all the parties and keeping you up to date on the major happenings of the festival.

I would like to also encourage you to tell us what you see at the festival this year. If you have an opinion you want to share, click on our films tab and leave a comment on that film’s page. If you see a post on a party you attended, comment on the post and let us know anything excited we may have missed.

And know, this blog stands year-round. We like to think this is a resource not just for Southwest Florida cinephiles to keep up with the festival in real time, but a means for them to tell the world what is happening here in Sarasota. This blog is visited by independent film professionals and movie lovers from all around the world. It is an important platform for us, but also a soapbox for you.

Enjoy the festival. Enjoy the Backlot. Tell us what you see. And now, let’s have some fun during Sarasota’s most star-studded week.
