The Phoenix Film Festival and International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival (IHSFF) gets underway this Thursday evening with the opening night premiere of the new Tom Hardy (AKA Bane) film, Locke. But this Sunday the show goes full geek with a mini comic-con styled event they call, of course, “Geek Day!”

Admission to Geek Day is free and this year’s vendor line-up includes local pop culture artisans like Anabel Martinez and Allen Amis, costumed hero groups like the Arizona Avengers and Arizona Ghostbusters, local nerdy shops like Samurai Comics and Bookmans Entertainment Exchange, as well as educational representatives from Gangplank and University of Advancing Technology.

All the geeky goodness goes down from 1:00 – 6:00 p.m., Sunday, April 6, at the Phoenix Film Festival’s Party Pavilion, located next to the Harkins Scottsdale 101 theater. This is the perfect family event for those who can’t wait for the Phoenix Comicon this June. Get all the details at: phoenixfilmfestival.com/geek-day.

While you are out at the IHSFF, be sure not to miss screenings of these genre films: Oculus, with director Mike Flanagan in attendance; The Sacrament , with writer/director Ti West; Cujo, with special guest Dee Wallace; and Queen of Blood, with director Chris Alexander.
