Humphrey Bogart Film Festival

 

The Humphrey Bogart Film Festival was the ultimate festival for film buffs - where they could celebrate an iconic actor who appeared in 75 movies during a 50-year career. It took place in Key Largo, Florida. 

Festival highlights included indoor and outdoor showings of Bogart classics, and special events included the Costume party Casual Cocktail Reception, Bogart Block Party and Seaside Soirée. It was much more than just movie screenings. 

Throughout the weekend, fans could also take a look at Bogart memorabilia, find festival collectibles and book canal cruises on the fully restored African Queen, the original boat from John Huston’s 1951 film of the same name that starred Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. 

Interestingly there are a number of movies on our site that are based or were filmed in Florida and likely debuted at this festival, including Ford V Ferrari and parts of Cars 3!

It was an awesome festival and felt like a real celebation of Bogart - unfortunately it is no longer running, but it was a great event which we would love to see return one day!
