Sarasota Film Society is a nonprofit, member-supported organization, dedicated to providing the highest levels of entertainment and education to the public from all areas of the film industry. Since its founding by Dick and Sue Morris in 1984, Sarasota Film Society has grown in countless ways and now encompasses two separate and unique facilities, with one located at Burns Court Cinemas in downtown Sarasota, and the other at Lakewood Ranch Cinemas.
Sarasota Film Society continues to achieve success through its wonderful members along with its caring volunteers and staff.
Through numerous festivals and educational programs, coupled with fun and thought-provoking events, Sarasota Film Society has continued its promise to provide the community with a longstanding commitment to outreach and education through film.
For over 20 years, the Sarasota Film Society continues to bring international, independent and artistic feels to the local community through The Cine-World Film Festival once a year. Society members and the community at large are always welcome to stay up to date on the last films and film culture through our community newsletter.
