Phoenix Film Festival is 10 years old. Time to hit this mofo.
Look, they're showing around 150 films from 21 nations. Not a typo! And 2010's PFF introduces the Opening Night Gala where the annual Visionary Award will be presented. The first award goes to Dan Harkins -- maybe you've heard of him -- and he'll present, in turn, the Dan Harkins Breakthrough Filmmaker Award. Hosted by Tara Hitchcock, the event includes cocktails, dinner, a silent auction, and a late screening of a Phoenix première, all benefiting Phoenix Childrens Hospital.
As the reels roll on through April 15, catch such intriguing titles as Butt Fighters, Multiple Sarcasms, Iranian, Gay & Seeking Asylum, and The Bolt Who Screwed Christmas (an animated short featuring the final performance of the late Jonathan Harris -- yup, Dr. Smith on Lost in Space).
April 8-15, 2010
