Sarasota Film Festival Program

SFF FOCUS: SPORTS IN CINEMA

Since the earliest days of media, sports were among the most iconic events captured on lm. Sports are a hallmark of our culture that celebrate human achievement, community and grit. Films that document achievements in sports history bring a rich narrative and context to greater social trends. We invite you to join us and our community partners in conversations around lms that revitalize events in sports history and touch upon wider themes.

• KILLER BEES
• LOVE MEANS ZERO
• DAUGHTERS OF THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION:

The Untold story of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders • A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN

 

KILLER BEES tells the story of a championship high school basketball team that is the source of tradition and hope for a tiny African-American community living in the midst of the Hamptons, one of America’s wealthiest areas. The lm is produced by the basketball legend Shaquille O’Neill. An NBA player will visit local schools and youth organizations as part of the program.
