Phoenix Loves Sci-Fi celebrates the best and brightest sci-fi, fantasy and animated films that have been produced or screened in Phoenix throughout the last year. The one-night event highlights a variety of official selections from community partners including the Phoenix Film Festival, Filmstock Film Festival, International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival and the Independent Feature Project Phoenix.
Most of these Arizona projects feature local casts and crews, and highlight a community of talented filmmakers whose unique voices have found a broader audience outside the desert.
The Phoenix Loves Sci-Fi program also includes eye-popping, award-winning, live-action and animated films from around the world, all utilizing diverse styles and exploring fantastic characters, worlds and themes.
The program features Arizona live-action, sci-fi shorts, such as “Alone,” directed by Tony Severe; “Focus,” directed by Matt Chesin; “Hoyt’s Awakening,” written and directed by Boise Esquerra; “Ouroboros,” directed by Alexander Broderick; “Reprogrammed,” directed by Daniel Jones; “The Rogue Animal,” directed by Adolpho Navarro; and “Vault of Souls: The Pact,” directed by Kevin R. Phipps.
For genre filmmakers whose journeys are vast and varied, taking a story from concept to script to screen, Phoenix Loves Sci-Fi is a celebration of those efforts and a proud call to “geek on.”
