Highlights of the film festival include a rotating selection of the performer’s classic films and a group of movies focusing on the film noir genre. Also planned are a formal Bogart Ball, an outdoor screening of “Casablanca,” a display of Bogart memorabilia and canal cruises on the fully restored African Queen, which is docked at the Holiday Inn Key Largo, mile marker 100. Stephen Bogart will appear at the event and participate in question-and-answer sessions with fans.
Bogie fans from around the globe can interact socially on the event’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages. Fans can vote for the Bogart movies they’d like to see during the film festival and, according to organizers, soon will be able to buy tickets, Key Largo hotel packages and merchandise on the event website.
“Key Largo” was the fourth and final film pairing married actors Bogart and Bacall. Altogether, Bogart appeared in 75 movies in his 50-year career.
