Short but Sweet

There are a lot of them, and they’re all quite short. But it’s neither the quantity nor the size that makes special the movies in the Phoenix Film Festival’s Best of Arizona Short Films event. It’s the quality. Six-and-a-half-hours of Arizona’s most popular short films of the past decade constitute the closing event of the festival's tenth anniversary. Highlights include Chris Redish’s The Blacksmith and The Carpenter (2007) featuring Tony Curtis as the voice of God; The Netherbeast of Berm-Tech Industries, Inc. (2004), which went on to become a feature film starring Judd Nelson; and Karl's In A Coma (2001), the festival’s first-ever Best Arizona Short Film award-winner. Following the screenings, Arizona Republic film critic Bill Goodykoontz will host a discussion and Q&A with the filmmakers.
