FILM. FEST. REPEAT.
MARCH 17-22, 2020
After careful deliberation and considering the advice of the Governor of Florida, as well as Hillsborough County and City of Tampa public officials, the Board of Directors of the Tampa Film Institute, Inc. have concluded that they cannot proceed with holding the Suncoast Credit Union Gasparilla International Film Festival as planned and are postponing the film festival and ancillary events in the interest of public health. This decision was not made lightly.
"After carefully reviewing all information available to us at this time, the Board of Directors has made the decision to put the health and physical safety of our attendees, staff, volunteers, sponsors and vendors at the forefront of our minds and postpone the festival,” said Tammy Briant Spratling, GIFF Board of Directors President. “The Board is exploring all options that will allow us to bring powerful and engaging independent film to the Tampa Bay area when concerns around COVID-19 have subsided."
All tickets and passes will be honored at our new date, which will be announced as soon as it becomes available. Please continue to check back for updates.
