Greetings, Raw Sarasota!
We got lucky!
I just received a call from the Sarasota Film Festival HQ & they have offered our group members two-for-one tickets for the opening night film, "Blackfish" that will be screened at the Van Wezel. Opening night is always exciting, with the filmmakers present on the red carpet, as well as national media. There will be a Q&A after the film.
This film is a documentary that considers animal rights, from the perspective of a killer whale at Sea World that has taken the lives of three people, including one of its trainers. It's a true story that explores the reality, and sometimes high cost, of keeping animals in captivity.
Purchase your tickets at the Film Festival box office at the Hollywood 20 Theater on Main Street in downtown. Be sure to tell them you're a member of Raw Sarasota and you'll get two tickets for $25, instead of one.

I look forward to seeing you there!
