The Phoenix Film Festival is proud to announce that our Opening Night Film is Danny Collins. Inspired by a true story, Al Pacino stars as aging 1970s rocker Danny Collins, who can't give up his hard-living ways. But when his manager (Christopher Plummer) uncovers a 40 year-old undelivered letter written to him by John Lennon, he decides to change course and embarks on a heartfelt journey to rediscover his family, find true love and begin a second act. Danny Collins also stars Annette Bening, Christopher Plummer, Jennifer Garner and Bobby Cannavale.
Once again, our opening night film will be shown in conjunction with our Opening night Kickoff Party on March 26, a full night of food and celebration, beginning at the Party Pavilion with tastes from some of the best restaurants in town, great entertainment and some special silent auction items.
Then it's over to the theatre where the Phoenix Film Festival will present its 2015 Visionary Award. Past Visionary Award recipients include Dan Harkins, Bob Oldfather from Bookmans and Dr. Sydney Shapiro.
Following the presentation of the Visionary Award, we will begin our Opening Night Film, Danny Collins.
Tickets for this Opening Night Event are $60 with all proceeds going to the Phoenix Film Foundation's education programs.
Please note that the Opening Night Event is not included in Single Tickets, Flex, Festival and VIP Passes.
