Ninth annual Sunscreen Film Festival will spread out across St. Pete venues

Not throwing shade on Baywalk 20 but the Sunscreen Film Festival is taking its ninth annual showcase elsewhere May 1-4. No offense intended, according to executive director Tony Armer, just no deal completed with the Sundial theater's new owners, Carmike Cinemas. "I actually feel really good about it," Armer said. "We've almost been on an island there (at the renamed Baywalk plaza) for the past couple years, with the construction and everything." Instead, more than 120 features, documentaries and shorts will be scattered around the Palladium, Dali Museum, Studio @620 and American Stage (which will also house filmmaking workshops). The lineup announced Monday includes the opening night comedy Confessions of a Womanizer, starring lunatic fringe dweller Gary Busey. Don't get your hopes up; Armer said Busey's booked that weekend at an event in California. His co-stars, WWE diva tag team the Bella Twins, are expected to attend. Complete Sunscreen information and tickets are available at sunscreenfilmfestival.com. — Steve Persall, Times movie critic
