Sarasota Film Festival Opening

The Next-Mark team attended the Sarasota Film Festival Opening on Friday. It was great to see the art direction of our Rob Welling and all the hard labor of The Sarasota Film Festival staff come together and produce such a fantastic event.

The opening night film, Robot and Frank, was very entertaining and I highly recommend that you check it out when you can! Frank Langella and director Jake Schreier were equally as entertaining in the post-film Q and A where they discussed everything from filming on low (zero) budget to the acting style favored by Mr Langella.

At the after party guests included the who’s who of Sarasota, Film Festival attendee’s and sponsors, aspiring film makers and actors. We got to meet a few film makers who’s work we’ll be sure to check out later in the week. The drinks flowed inside and outside under the stars and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
