Subject: IFA Adds $2,000 in Prize Money to Best Actor Awards


To acknowledge that so much great acting in Arizona goes without any monetary compensation, Independent Film Arizona has elected to add $2,000 in prize money to accompany it's Best Actor Awards.  $1,000 will be given to the recipient of the award for best male actor and an additional $1,000 will be given to the recipient of the award for best female actor.


Anyone can nominate an actor for the best actor awards by sending the actor's name and the actor's e-mail address to  The only eligibility requirements are that the actor either lives or has worked in Arizona.


Nominations will close on Friday, October 31 at Noon.  So get your nominations in now.


From the nominations, a panel of judges will select 10 finalists.


At Independent Film Arizona's Monday, November 3 Meeting, (7 PM at Connect Workspace, 33 South 5th Avenue, Tucson at 7 PM) -- IFA's membership will vote  from the list of finalists to select two winners (one male and one female).  The winners will be announced and the prize money will be awarded at the meeting.  (It's all about immediate gratification.)


We hope you come to the November 3 IFA Meeting (7 PM at Connect, 33 South 5th Avenue, Tucson) to vote for best actor and find out who will win the best actor awards.  There will be a presentation on ultra-low budget filmmaking (while the votes are being counted) and after the awards are announced you will have an opportunity to watch the US premiere of the film Ambiguity (which was shoot in Guatemala and in Tucson).  All IFA meetings are free and open to all.
