4th Annual Humphrey Bogart Film Festival in Key Largo

The dates for the 2016 Humphrey Bogart Film Festival in Key Largo have been announced! The successful event, which drew Bogie-lovers from around the world last year, will be October 12-16. This year, they celebrate the 75th anniversary of The Maltese Falcon.

The Casablanca-themed Bogart Ball was a hit last year in Key Largo. Luminaries such as Stephen Bogart, son of Bogie and Bacall, and Jack Huston, actor and grandson of director John Huston were on hand for an evening of fun. Well-known film critic Leonard Maltin shared his insights on Bogart's legacy as the tough guy with a heart of gold. 

We were treated to a cocktail reception filled with jazz trumpet and piano music a la the film, casino-style gambling and passed hors d'oeuvres. Dinner was a spicy Moroccan-themed menu capped with a delicious baklava dessert accented with cinnamon whipped cream. Dancing continued into the night, and the inaugural Humphrey Bogart Film Festival was deemed a success by all who attended--some from as far away as Australia.
