Sarasota Film Festival Announces 2014 Lineup

Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter

The 2014 Sarasota Film Festival lineup looks — as ever — to be a nice mix of Sundance, SXSW and international titles, with a few discoveries to be had as well. The 16th edition is set to open with Rory Kennedy’s Last Days in Vietnam, and close with Charlie McDowell’s The One I Love. John Slattery’s God’s Pocket and John Rossi’s Ivory Tower mark the Centerpiece films.

Other Sundance standouts are Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter; FrankRich Hill; Wetlands; Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart and Blue Ruin, which has seemingly made every imaginable stop on the major festival circuit. Major auteurs  — Tsai Ming-Liang, Corneliu Porumboiu, Pawel Pawlikowski — dot the lineup alongside Billy Wilder, Leos Carax and William A. Wellman retrospectives. A hearty congrats goes out to our 25 New Faces Iva Radivojevic and Josephine Decker who will also be in attendance.
