Phoenix Film Festival
Among the highlights of this year's fest are Hi, My Name Is Ryan (the documentary about Phoenix's eternally youthful Mormon thrash vocalist/performance artist Ryan Avery) and the documentaries The Way We Get By, about a trio of Maine senior citizens who greet troops returning from the war, and I Know a Woman Like That, about the lives of women between the ages of 64 and 94 produced by actress Virginia Madsen and directed by her mother, Elaine Madsen. Fiction features include the British drama Is There Anybody There?, the romance 500 Days of Summer, and PFF co-founder Chris Lamonts My Apocalypse.
