10 Must-See Movies and Events at the 2015 Phoenix Film Festival

The Phoenix Film Festival may not yet be a major player in the worldwide film festival scene, but it might only be a matter of time until that is the case. In its 15th year of existence, the festival has once again pulled in an intriguing variety of studio-released fare, independent films, foreign entries, shorts and non-screening events. Though tickets are available as low as $13 for a single film, spring for one of the pass options and binge your way through as many as you can. Not sure where to start? Here are our top 10 picks for films to check out during the 2015 festival, which runs from Thursday, March 26, through Thursday, April 2. Pretend it's Netflix and just go for it.
