Festival host Stephen Bogart at our Bogart's Gin bar

2017 festival co-host Illeana Douglas

A nighttime outdoor screening


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!   .

In years one and two, Stephen Bogart was joined by film historian Leonard Maltin. The past two years, Stephen was joined by "Czar of Noir" Eddie Muller.  In 2017 we celebrated the 75th anniversary of Casablanca with both Stephen and Leslie Bogart, lleana Douglas, Monika Henreid, whose father Paul Henreid starred as Victor Laszlo, and Jessica Rains, the daughter of Claude Rains, who so brilliantly portrayed Capt. Renault!

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 traditional movie theaters and outside, on a giant screen, under the stars next to the Gulf of Mexico. Imagine that moment … watching the Bogart classic 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 Bogart's Spirits, 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!
