Scottsdale Film Festival
Often described as a “desert version of Miami’s South Beach,” Scottsdale is bursting with an exhilarating night life and cultural scene. And, with each passing year, the Scottsdale Film Festival has been adding to the avant-garde culture that is Scottsdale and is one of the most visited Scottsdale festivals.
About the Scottsdale Film Festival
This community-funded event, usually in November, has provided not just the Scottsdale locals, but also visitors, with a wide variety of films for viewing. Founded in 2001, the Scottsdale Film Festival continues to expand and grow, and is truly a “destination event.” Lasting over several days in historic Scottsdale and embracing many film genres, the festival screens many movies that may not be shown in other locations.
With the large number of films screened each year, there will be many films that appeal to every viewer. Past film themes have included: Women Directors, Children’s Animated Shores, Documentaries, ‘Based on Books’, French & Italian Spotlight, and LGBTQ Spotlight. Q&A sessions are scheduled after many of the films for added interest.
