We are all aware that organizations and businesses around the world have been dramatically impacted by the Covid-19 virus and may continue throughout the foreseeable future.
However, we wish to inform you that although the 15th Annual Sunscreen Film Festival is NOT cancelled, we are postponing the festival until a later date, to be determined. Again, we wish to reiterate that the 15th Annual Sunscreen Film Festival is not cancelled. New dates later this year will be announced in the coming months, so, please stand by.
Meanwhile, we wish to extend a heartfelt thanks to our staff, especially to Mr. Chris Eaton, Sunscreen’s Programming Director, for his tireless efforts in programming this year’s festival. We also wish to thank our volunteers, board members, sponsors, the local community and the filmmakers for their continued support. Thousands of hours have gone into preparing for this year’s festival, and our decision to postpone was not an easy one.
Over the weeks and months to come, we shall endeavor to commemorate Sunscreen’s 15th year, “celebrating the creativity of independent filmmaking” by exhibiting an amazing array of narrative feature films, documentaries, short and experimental films, workshops and events!
From our family to yours, thank you for your continued support. Stay healthy and safe! We hope to see you later this fall!

The programming is outstanding... championing courageous, distinctive, transcendent films...Sunscreen went out of their way to be supportive, run by an impressive, helpful and affiable staff.
The festival is amazing, great movies in a beautiful city. Can't wait to go back! Our short film "Him" screened there and we had a wonderful time sharing with the audience. The selection this year was outstanding and very supportive of LGBTQ rights.
The workshops were wonderful and one of the highlights. The location was perfect. Since all the screenings were at one location, it made it easy to see the other films and interact with the other filmmakers. A lot of thought goes into the festival and that they truly value independent films and filmmakers.

What a great festival! I highly recommend film makers submit and attend this festival. They are very supportive of all film makers, provide opportunities for networking, and moderate great workshops.
The 15th Annual Sunscreen Film Festival would like to thank Visit St. Pete Clearwater and the Film Commission office.
