Join Us October 5-7, 2018 at the Hermosa Beach Community Center!


Thanks so much for your interest in the Sunscreen Film Festival WEST. I am truly thrilled to be in a position where I can affect so many filmmakers in a positive way. Offering a venue for filmmakers to bring their art to the screen has been a dream of mine for many years. Having it come to fruition in my hometown of Hermosa Beach is just, “Icing on the cake”.

In this day and age Storytelling can come from many different mediums and formats. We are happy to feature: Full length films, Shorts, Web series and all forms of documentaries. Furthermore, we will have a, “Region created” film each year that is developed or born in our community.

Please join us in celebrating “Stories made from motion pictures”, as they are told by many different filmmakers from around the world and brought to sunny Hermosa Beach; the Bohemian artist leading community of the South Bay of Los Angeles.
