Welcome to our new Programming Director!

Welcome to J. Tyler Martinolich, the new Programming Director for the Sunscreen Film Festival! Professor of Digital Film at both the Ringling College of Art & Design and the University of Tampa, Tyler’s films have played at well over 100 national and international film festivals including Tribeca, Telluride, Films Across America, and the Venice international film festivals. Tyler is also an avid writer, having previously been the recipient of the Hollins Book Award for excellence in creative writing. As if this were not enough to prove his diverse talent, Tyler is also the recipient of substantial artistic and academic fellowships through the Savannah College of Art & Design. Most recently, Tyler attended the Cannes Film Festival, where he was one of 15 American Filmmakers chosen to mentor students attending the festival. Given this impressive background, I think it’s safe to say we’ve chosen well…
