About the organizer

The Sunscreen Film Festival has grown from its first festival in a local art gallery with 600 attendees in 2006. Now it is an internationally recognized event with an annual attendance of over 10,000 in St. Petersburg, FL and Los Angeles, CA. In 2013 the festival expanded to Los Angeles and now holds the Florida version in the spring and the Los Angeles version in the fall each year.

Sunscreen was voted one of the “25 Coolest Film Fests” in the country by MovieMaker Magazine in 2009 and was voted the Best Tampa Bay Area Film Festival in 2012 by Tampa Bay Magazine. Sunscreen was one of only 23 Film Fests in the country to be awarded a Film Festival Grant by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2013-2014.

Filmmakers consistently rave about Sunscreen’s hospitality and atmosphere. Filmmakers from around the world attend the fest travelling from Europe, Latin America, North America and Asia.

The Sunscreen Film Festival is an annual film festival hosted by the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Film Society Inc., a Florida not-for-profit corporation. Our primary goal is to encourage the creation, production, and exhibition of independent film in Florida through our educational programs and public screenings, thereby increasing awareness and support of local filmmaking as a cultural and economic asset. We hope to continue to consistently entertain and challenge audiences and create memorable moments for filmmakers, special guests, judges, and the film-loving public.
