Sarasota’s narrative competish slate of six pics include Tom Twyker’s “Three,” Azazel Jacobs’ “Terri” and Radu Muntean’s “Tuesday, After Christmas” among the films making the fest circuit.

Docu competition, with seven entries, includes Cindy Meehl’s horse-whisperer tale “Buck,” Mimi Chakarova’s sex-trafficking investigation “The Price of Sex” (in a world preem) and Robert Greene’s pro-wrestling docu “Fake It So Real.”

Andrew Rossi’s journalism doc “Page One” preemed at Sundance earlier this year, while Mike Mills’ Christopher Plummer-Ewan MacGregor starrer “Beginners,” about an older man who makes a couple of startling announcments, first screened at Toronto last year and is set for release by Focus Features.

Plummer will receive the fest’s Cinema Master kudo, while Geena Davis gets the Impact Award and Sarah Green (“The Tree of Life”) scores the producer’s award.
