Filmstock festival returns to Arizona
The traveling film festival known as “Filmstock” will be making its last stop of the year this December at Tempe’s Pollack Cinemas. The three-day event (Dec. 5 – 7, 2013) will showcase 12 award-winning short films and a selection of new movies from Arizona and beyond.
In addition to the Arizona festival, the Filmstock circuit also includes stops in the other “four-corner” states, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah, where audience members vote on debut films and are part of the process of advancing a movie towards additional festival screenings.
The official selections featured in Filmstock’s Arizona festival include:
- A Stray – Hayden Blades
- El Western – Ivan Malekin
- Highway Duel – Auburn Hodgson
- Insecurity – Robert Brink
- Inseparable – Nick White
- Into the Black – Dae Hyun Song
- The Last Piper – Iain Forbes
- Silent Treatment – Mark Lobatto
- Spare Real Gun – Jayme Davis
- The Worst Best Man – Kenny Colt
The Filmstock festival started in 2009 and has become an excellent opportunity for movie fans to discover new independent films and maybe even meet the next big names in filmmaking. The event is also one of the best networking opportunities for filmmakers in the southwest region.
If you go: There will be three evenings of fun-filled film showings, December 5 – 7, 2013, at Tempe Pollack Cinemas (1835 E. Elliot Road, Tempe, AZ.) Screenings and events start at 7:00 p.m. each evening. For tickets and more information visit: filmstockfilmfestival.com.
