    The Sunburn Festival is clearly a festival run BY those who are passionate about film FOR those who share that passion. A friendly and responsive staff draws a committed audience to a historic theater with a funky, art-house vibe. We were happy to have our short thriller “Cold Service” shown, and we knew that it was in good hands. Sunburners, we hope to see you again soon!

  • The Sunburn Festival was great! It was held in a quaint, yet impressive, theatre in the heart of Tucson. I got to meet the festival runners, whom are very friendly and super passionate about what they do! They featured my short, Retribution, and I had the opportunity to meet another director from the category. I quite enjoyed the selections and look forward to submitting again in the future! Thank you Arizona Sunburn Film Fest!
