There are a lot of them, and theyre all quite short. But its neither the quantity nor the size that makes special the movies in the Phoenix Film Festivals Best of Arizona Short Films event. Its the quality. Six-and-a-half-hours of Arizonas most popular short films of the past decade constitute the closing event of the festival's tenth anniversary. Highlights include Chris Redishs 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 festivals 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.
