2020 Festival Postponed

With great regret, we are postponing the 2020 Festival due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Our priority is first and foremost the safety and well-being of our filmmakers, staff, audience members and the community. The new dates for 29th Arizona International Festival are October 1 – 12, 2020. We believe in the power of independent film to bring people together and that independent voices should be heard to strengthen and enlighten our communities.
