FILM FEST TUCSON
Film Fest Tucson is a destination film festival, a place for filmmakers and audiences to meet, discover and experience unique and important stories told on film. The festival is for the community of Southern Arizona, as well as for visitors to the region to experience the unique environment, heritage and culture of Tucson and the surrounding area, while seeing new and important films. Programming at Film Fest Tucson includes both short and feature-length narrative and documentary films that have been selected for their quality, timeliness and subject matter. With a strong interest in presenting work by emerging as well as established filmmakers, Film Fest Tucson has some of the best audiences on the circuit—educated and savvy film fans who look forward to post screening Q & A’s almost as much as the films themselves. With top quality projection and sound presented in unique venues, panels, parties and some of Tucson’s most iconic experiences like The Arizona Inn, Whiskey del Bac and many others, Film Fest Tucson is the place to be in October.
Screenings at Film Fest Tucson 2016 will take place in the historic Scottish Rite Cathedral, located at 160 South Scott Avenue in downtown Tucson. The 15,000 square foot building was built in 1915-1916 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It features four different lodge rooms—some with 35-foot ceilings—that have been transformed into state-of-the-art screening rooms for digital projection of Film Fest Tucson films. While the property continues to be utilized by the Masonic order of Southern Arizona, it has also rapidly become one of the most popular event facilities in Tucson due to its character, location and historical significance. There is ample parking within walking distance of the venue, and there are many restaurants also close by for before or after film food and drink.
