Sarasota Film Society is a nonprofit, member-supported organization, dedicated to providing the highest levels of entertainment and education to the public from all areas of the film industry. Since its founding by Dick and Sue Morris in 1984, Sarasota Film Society has grown in countless ways and now encompasses two separate and unique facilities, with one located at Burns Court Cinemas in downtown Sarasota, and the other at Lakewood Ranch Cinemas.

Through numerous festivals and programs, coupled with fun and thought-provoking events and series, the SFS has continued its promise to provide its community with a longstanding commitment to entertainment, outreach, and education through film.
