Chandler Film Festival awards Best Feature Film to Julia Verdin's Angie Lost Girls

Lovely surprise when @chandlerfilmfest Mitesh Patel (right) came and presented our best film award for Angie: Lost Girls in person.

Words from the director


"The fabulous Chandler International Film Festival (CIFF) is finally upon us. During this time of COVID-19, we know the world is suffering. Our task is to create a positive and entertaining experience for people around the world. That is why we created the film festival to be viewed at three different venues: drive-in, virtual, and in the theater. The filmmakers have worked hard to showcase their films, music videos, and screenplays. The festival is proud to invite those filmmakers from around the world and country to assemble in historic Chandler, Arizona. CIFF is a proud partner with the City of Chandler. CIFF is thrilled to screen over 120 films at Harkins Chandler Fashion 20, virtually on our website and have a special screening of Tombstone at our Drive-in setting. To further enrich Chandler’s sense of culture the festival has collected a wide array of films from all stretches of the world. Local artists will also be recognized as Arizona filmmakers and writers continue to build a strong reputation within the film community. We will be enforcing the CDC guidelines at the festival. It is very important that we follow these guidelines for the safety and protection of all of us. Please remember to wear your mask, wash your hands often, socially distant, and above all enjoy yourself. Come join us as we welcome all our guests from far and wide. All are welcome-film professionals, film enthusiasts, and casual fans. There is something for everyone."
