Hey all, Intern Katy here to tell you all about the great Tampa Bay film events going on over the next couple of weeks!
Remember the Summer Camp Film School I blogged about a few weeks back? Well The Sunscreen Film Festival and Studio 620 are proud to announce that the campers are ready to showcase their stuff! This FREE event will take place at 7PM this Friday, July 17, at Studio 620, 620 First Ave. South, St. Pete, FL 33701. Like I said, this event is FREE of charge, so come out and support not only arts and culture in Tampa Bay, but most importantly these young filmmakers!

For those of you interested in hydrogenated oils (yep, you read me right), or those of you trying to avoid them,I've got the film screening just for you! At 7PM on July 24th, "InGREEDients" will screen in the Arboretum of The Art Institute of Tampa. David Burton, registered nurse and filmmaker, is a Tampa native, so come out and support this local talent. To learn more about the film and the screening, check out the InGREEDients Movie Screening Facebook Event.
Speaking of film screenings, I'd like to remind everyone of the Gasparilla Film Festival screening of "I Am From Titov Veles" this Saturday, July 18th, at 8PM. for more info, click here. GIFF will also be hosting a fundraiser this month. The fundraiser will be held at the Tapper Pub on July 31st, from 6-8PM. Just $10 at the door gets you unlimited draft beer, Barefoot Wine, appetizers, and one raffle ticket. Come meet the current GIFF members to network and celebrate the joy of film with those who share the same passion for art and culture in Tampa Bay! As one of Florida's largest independent film festivals, operated by the Tampa Film Institute, they rely heavily upon the support of sponsors and members, so help support this great organization!
Finally, don't forget about the 48 Hour Film Project taking place this weekend. The completed films will be screened on Wednesday, July 22nd at Channelside Cinemas. There are two screenings -- 6:30PM and 9PM. For more information, click here.
