The Prescott Film Festival's mission is to support independent film and provide the community with cultural events that entertain, inspire, and inform while supporting independent and critically acclaimed films and filmmakers from around the world.

The Prescott Film Festival is excited to announce our 9th annual festival which will take place June 8-16 on the campus of Yavapai College. We screen in the newly remodeled 800 seat Yavapai College Performing Arts Center with HD projection, Myers Sound, ànd fantastic views from our upstairs VIP lounge. Q & A's follow most screenings and we also try to have a short film proceed each feature. Additionally we work to create at least three shorts programs. Prescott is located at an elevation of 5,200 feet above sea level in the midst of the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the U.S. hiking trails surround the area, along with lakes for canoeing, golf, museums and an historic downtown that would make the perfect locations for your next film. Join us for five days of films in one of the most beautiful areas in Arizona.

Prescott Film Festival seeks to present "Movies That Move You" and over our 9 year history we have earned a reputation for showing an outstanding selection of films. We also seek to provide an excellent experience for our filmmakers who attend. Filmmakers receive an all-access pass that gets them into all the films, workshops, seminars, after-parties with live music and the awards party. Additionally film makers are the stars throughout the festival and in the VIP Lounge where snacks and beverages keep you going! Some complimentary lodging accommodations are also available.
