Arizona Underground Film Festival is Arizona’s premier genre cult film festival, and one of the most recognized underground film festivals in the country! We make it our sole mission to showcase the work of filmmakers with defiantly independent visions. We are on a quest to represent every genre of independent film from across the world celebrating the artist, and their work.
Its our 17th year presenting some of the best in films from categories of Narrative, Horror, Documentaries, Experimental, and Animation. Join us in the underground!
