The 12th Annual Sarasota Film Festival kicked off tonight and I thought the red carpet was a little lackluster. Actor Kevin Kline, who stars in The Extra Man, which was the event’s opening night film, walked the carpet, arriving in a huge Rolls-Royce around 6:45 p.m., 15 minutes before the screening. Directors, Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini – the wife-and-husband team whose credits include American Splendor, walked the red carpet, too, but I didn’t catch a decent shot of the couple.
Don’t get me wrong. These are big names but a few more celebs would’ve been nice. But, my friend VB and I had fun checking out the threads Sarasota socialites were wearing. (This being her first time “stalking” the red carpet, she also had fun waving during television media shots. I swear, it was not my intention to end up in the background of ANY video shots. I swear!)
Was there a specific fashion theme tonight? Perhaps anything that glimmers. Below are a few fashion-type shots and here’s a caveat: I’m by far a fashionista. Additional photos can be viewed on my Flickr account.
I’ll be back in Sarasota next week for more Sarasota Film Festival events.
