Today’s Local First Arizona member spotlight is on the Phoenix Film Festival:
Remember way back in the day when the Phoenix Film Festival was just starting out? Since then, it's amazing to see its humble beginnings transform and explode with popularity. Having been a long supporter of indie films and the festival itself, it's amazing to see its humble beginnings transform and explode with popularity. Already named one of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals and the most filmmaker-friendly festival, Arizona's Largest Film Festival is sure to deliver an even greater splash this year. The Phoenix Film Festival annually screens over 150 films, holds a wide range of kid-focused events, filmmaking seminars, and coveted evening industry parties. This year includes celebrity visits from D. B. Sweeney, Natalie Imbruglia, Melora Walters and Teller as well as "The Art of Food" Cocktail Party on opening night, and tons of great films for this year's celebration. The 13th Annual Phoenix Film Festival occurs this year from Thursday, April 4 - April 11 at Harkins Scottsdale 10 Theaters located at 7000 E. Mayo Blvd. Phoenix, AZ 85054. We hope to see you there!
