Our second year!! This years event will be held in Tempe, Arizona!
Although the Arizona Film Community is our focus, we will be making room for ONE out of state screening spot this year!

WHY US? Here are a few reasons:

1. We are celebrating YOU and YOUR talent, AND making a difference in the Arizona community! We have simplified the categories that will help less visible talent become more visible! Check it out!

2. Your talent celebration moves one step further by honoring Arizona local non-profits. This years benefactor is a non-profit called Agnes' Centers for Domestic Solutions helping bring awareness and solutions to individuals and families affected by domestic abuse. (www.agnescenters.com) We are donating 10% of all profits TO this chosen charity!!

3. The event will be covered by two of the industries hottest magazines, a local radio station and a reporter from the paper.

    Amazing and awesome to see a fest that focuses on what we do specifically here in AZ.

    This festival is a great idea. It aims to showcase Indie Films from Arizona. Unfortunately, present filmmakers were not acknowledged at the screening ( without our films there would be no content for the screening), and local celebrities and fundraising for good cause became the main part of the event. As a filmmaker, I was disappointed to not be provided any special seating or possibilities for networking. The organizers still have a lot to learn about film festivals.
