New dates for the 29th Arizona International Film Festival
The Arizona Media Arts Center has announced that the 29th Arizona International Film Festival will be rescheduled for April 14th-25th, 2021.
“2020 has brought about some unexpected challenges and with the uncertainty still surrounding the status of COVID-19, we felt it was in the best interest of our filmmakers, audience, staff, and the local community to forgo a festival in 2020.”
Welcome to the 29th Arizona International Film Festival
Staying true to its mission of showcasing independent film, the Arizona International Film Festival has exhibited over 2,900 films representing 100 countries to over 162,000 patrons in southern Arizona. And now, the 29th edition will select more exciting and innovative films from around the world for Arizona audiences.
A diverse line-up of films!!
The Selection Committee has released their selection of films including 30 features and 78 shorts from 21 countries for screening at the 29th Arizona International Film Festival. The Selection Committee praised the quality and diversity of the record number of films submitted this year. Congratulations filmmakers!
"The AzFilmFest team feels that the films selected for the 29th festival are collectively one of the strongest selections of indie films we have had. We want to share this cinematic treasure trove with Arizona audiences."
