Opening night of the SFF 2013, I had a chance to talk on the Red Carpet with Sarasota’s ‘Power Couple’; Richard Dorfman and Suzette Jones. I asked them what they hope to get out of the festival and what they want others to know.
Richard Dorfman – (Running for Sarasota City Commission)
I hope the word of the festival gets out all over the world so people can see what a wonderful place Sarasota is and they come here. We are the biggest little town on the planet. This festival puts Sarasota on the planet.

Suzette Jones – (Business Consultant)
I want to see movies, I didn’t see any last year.
I went to the very first festival, it was 15 years ago and it was three days long in the parking lot under a tent behind the Hollywood 20.
Since then, it’s gone glamorous, yet really accessible. You actually meet the people who make the films and star in them and you can’t do that in other film festivals.
Brian Cranston; Breaking Bad, Malcolm in the middle – are now friends of my family because of the Sarasota film festival.
