Scottsdale International Film Festival

Mission Statement: The Scottsdale International Film Festival is a destination event and catalyst for connecting diverse filmmakers from around the world with film lovers in a fresh, thought-provoking, and enduring community of support. This mission has grown more vital with each passing year. Since its inception the Scottsdale International Film Festival (SIFF) has reached an audience of over 71,500 and has showcased more than 350 films and videos.

As its primary activity, the Festival presents a five-day annual October film festival as a destination event for Scottsdale, its surrounding communities, and for its feeder markets. The Festival has showcased more than 350 films over the past 12 years from more than 60 nations, including unique works from countries as diverse as Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Finland, India, Israel, Japan, Kyrgystan, Mali, Mexico, Slovenia, South Korea, Sweden, Tanzania, and Viet Nam.

During the most recent 12th Festival in October 2012, a wide range of films and filmmakers, including:

* An Opening Night showing of THE EYE OF THE STORM, directed by Fred Schepisi, who was in attendance and answered questions from the audience after the film;
* Three Centerpiece showings of STRUCK BY LIGHTNING starring Chris Colfer of GLEE; SHADOW DANCER starring Clive Owen; and QUARTET - Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut.
* A Closing Night showing (and Arizona premiere) of THE SESSIONS, staring Helen Hunt and John Hawkes;
* The Arizona premieres of 11 films; and
* The award-winning Czech Republic film NICKY'S FAMILY, about the remarkable efforts one man took to rescue 669 Czech children from death during WWII.

Most of the 38 feature films (69 screenings) presented during the 2012 five-day event, including four foreign language Oscar contenders, would not have been seen in the metropolitan area if not for the Festival.
