Kids' Day: Kids' Day is a special event that takes place on Saturday of the Phoenix Film Festival. Kids' Day is geared towards children from ages 5 to 12 and features hands-on film activities. The kids learn how green screens work, special effects are edited, sound effects are created and many other fun film stuff. Then they get to see a family film of their choice.There is no other film festival in the country offering this program to children and this is your chance to support it.

Your donations support handout materials, a USB drive that they get to take home and film programming.

Student Educational Outreach: This program is also unique to the Phoenix Film Festival. Middle school and high school students have the opportunity to participate in four day-long film workshops. The first day, they participate in panel discussions with filmmakers that are attending the film festival from around the world. The filmmakers talk about how they get involved in film and how they've completed their projects. On day two, the students learn about screenwriting. With the help of mentors they create a short film script. Then on day three, the focus is on acting for film with casting directors and professional actors sharing their experiences and the students participating in exercises. On the fourth and final day, the students produce a short film using a script created on the screenplay day. The students will break out into crews and assist in the production.This program has been in existence for nine years and is one of our favorite programs. Your donations assist us in providing guest speakers, creating handouts and having equipment on hand for the students to use.
Arizona Student Film Festival: The Arizona Student Film Festival is a showcase of films exclusively from Arizona students. From students in third grade all the way through college, students have the opportunity to see their work up on the big screen. In addition to short films, students are also given a topic to make a public service announcement about. The films are then screened for the public and awards are handed out.We always look forward to seeing what the next generation of filmmakers are creating. Your donations help support printing materials, the event program and prizes for the winning filmmakers.
