Movie awards season is upon us. And the Scottsdale International Film Festival often hosts the Arizona premieres of various pictures whose artistic merit will surprise viewers. This year’s no exception.

The Western The Ballad of Lefty Brown opens the 2017 event on Thursday, November 2, with Bill Pullman as the title character avenging the death of his sidekick. The film’s director, Jared Moshé, will host a Q&A session after the 8 p.m. screening.

Other notable festival highlights include Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying and the foreign drama In Syria, which the festival’s executive director, Amy Ettinger, cannot recommend highly enough. “It’s very rare I get emotional over a film,” she says.
