Gasparilla Film Festival continues to establish itself as one of Florida's premiere film festivals alongside the Miami International Film Festival, the Palm Beach International Film Festival and the Sarasota International Film Festival. For 2009, we look forward to bringing even more stars, more great filmmakers, and especially more great independent movies to Tampa Bay from around the world. We are truly building something special, and it's great fun to be a part of it."
