Scottsdale International Film Festival

2016 Fest Dates: Thursday, Oct. 6 - Monday, Oct. 10

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 90,000 and has showcased more than 450 films and videos.

As its primary activity, the Festival presents a five-day annual film festival as a destination event for Scottsdale, its surrounding communities, and for its feeder markets.

The 15th Scottsdale International Film Festival kicked off at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts with daytime screenings of childrens animated and live-action short films, which attracted more than 600 students. The Festival’s opening night celebration at the Center featured the documentary LANDFILL HARMONIC, which told the inspiring story of Paraguays Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, the world-famous youth symphony that performs with instruments made from recycled trash. After the film, which later won the Audience Award for “Best Film,” the Recycled Orchestra, conducted by its founder, Favio Chavez, performed onstage and participated in an audience Q-and-A, along with Executive Producer Alejandra Amarilla and Producer Juliana Penaranda-Loftus. Following opening night, the Festival returned to its longtime home at Harkins Shea 14 Theatre in Scottsdale for all other screenings. Among the highlights were THE ADDERALL DIARIES (starring James Franco and Ed Harris), ANOMALISA (Jennifer Jason Leigh), THE BENFACTOR (Richard Gere, Dakota Fanning and Theo James), CAROL (Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara), HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT (Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson), LOVE THE COOPERS (John Goodman and Diane Keaton), REMEMBER (Martin Landau and Christopher Plummer), TUMBLEDOWN (Rebecca Hall and Jason Sudeikis) and YOUTH (Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel). Festival audiences enjoyed insights from moderators and select Q-and-A sessions. Among the special guests were actor Jack McGee and filmmakers Nestor and Rosemary Rodriguez of the indie dramedy SILVER SKIES; Jessica Cox, the focus of the documentary RIGHT FOOTED; and Kate Geis, executive producer of the documentary PAUL TAYLOR: CREATIVE DOMAIN.

Most of the 58 films (73 screenings) presented during the 2015 five-day event would not have been seen in the metropolitan area if not for the Festival.
