Stars shine in St. Petersburg for Sunscreen Film Festival

St. Petersburg had stars in its eyes Thursday when the Sunscreen Film Festival kicked off its 12th edition.

Award winning actors Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story) and Joe Pantoliano (The Sopranos) walked the red carpet outside the Palladium Theater before the opening night feature Blind co-starring McDermott.

Cheers star Kirstie Alley dropped by during one of her frequent visits to Clearwater.

Yet the most photographed celebrity on the red carpet may have been Apple, a miniature horse led by Castille Landon, director of Sunday's closing film Albion: The Enchanted Stallion.

Stars will be out at Sunscreen all weekend, from Daphne Zuniga hosting Friday's 8 p.m. free screening of Spaceballs at the Museum of Fine Arts to Emmy winner Jane Seymour guesting at Saturday's sold out Women in Film brunch.

Sunscreen's hub through Sunday is AMC Sundial 20 with events planned at American Stage, [email protected] and other venues.

Details about screenings, industry workshops and parties are available at sunscreenfilmfestival.com.
