5. Almost Famous Film Festival
Regional filmmakers competed in the 48-Hour Film Challenge last weekend, during which teams had to create a short movie (one to five minutes in length) that included a theme of lost love, a character setting a clock, and an utterance of the phrase, "This could get complicated." Judges selected their 20 favorite quick flicks from the competition, and those will screen at AMC Arizona Center 24 tonight at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8. See more here.
