Humphrey Bogart Film Festival

The Humphrey Bogart Estate, led by Stephen Humphrey Bogart (son of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall), hosts the annual Humphrey Bogart Film Festival at the stunning Playa Largo hotel in the tropical paradise of Key Largo, Florida! Not only is Key Largo named after the classic Bogie and Bacall film, but the real, original boat from The African Queen is docked in Key Largo! Join us October 17-21, 2018, as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of Key Largo IN Key Largo AND the 70th anniversary of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre!


The festival is hosted by Stephen Bogart. In the first two years Stephen Bogart was joined by film historian Leonard Maltin. The following two years, Stephen was joined by "Czar of Noir" Eddie Muller. Last year, Stephen was joined by the multi-talented Illeana Douglas. Each year, Stephen is joined by special guests. Prior guests have included Leslie Bogart, Jack Huston, Monika Henreid, Rhys Coiro, Jessica Rains, Xander Berkeley, and many others. We will soon announce the co-hosts and special guests for this year's festival.

As observed by two-time festival co-host Leonard Maltin (the man who declared Casablanca “the best Hollywood movie of all time”), the Humphrey Bogart Film Festival presents classic Bogart films like they were meant to be seen: “on the big screen.” The larger-than-life presentations are offered both in the local movie theater and on the beach at Playa Largo. Imagine that moment … watching Key Largo IN Key Largo, next to the waters Bogie navigated in the classic movie for which this island was named.

In addition to showing Bogart classics on the big screen, the festival presents a variety of special events, including cocktail receptions featuring our Bogart Spirits (gin, rum, vodka), round table discussions, a great display of family-owned memorabilia, expert film introductions, a Saturday evening dinner, and a closing brunch on Sunday overlooking the breathtaking waters of the Florida Keys. In between catching a movie or attending an event, the true Bogart aficionados somehow find time to take a cruise on the original African Queen boat!

Please join Stephen Bogart and our special guests as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of two Bogart classics, watch Bogart on the big screen, drink some Bogart Spirits, ride on the real boat from The African Queen, and discuss our love of all things Bogart in "America’s Caribbean,” Key Largo, Florida!
