The 16th annual Phoenix Film Festival has been announced for this spring, leaving you just enough hours to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens roughly 960 more times.
While the festival's lineup has yet to be released (and won't likely feature anything from J.J. Abrams), the festival itself will return to Harkins Scottsdale 101 Theaters from April 7 to April 14, offering indie and locally made movies ranging from dramas, sci-fi flicks, and comedies to documentaries and animated shorts. In years past, such local films as Broken Leg, Hi, My Name Is Ryan, and The Joe Show have been screened. Past opening night features have included Locke and Danny Collins.
On February 18, passes and tickets to the 2016 edition of the festival will go on sale. Pricing ranges from $13 for a single-screening ticket to $300 for an all-access platinum pass. Those and everything in between (including discount ticket options for students) will be available through Phoenix Film Festival's website and at Phoenix Film Festival Ticket Center, which is located next to Harkins Scottsdale 101.
