Phoenix Film Festival 2014

The Phoenix Film Festival is the premier festival from the Phoenix Film Foundation and the largest film festival within the city of Phoenix (as Jason Carney pointed out after I posted last year's index page; The Harkins Scottsdale 101, as its name suggests, is almost literally a stone's throw from Scottsdale, but it's still in Phoenix). 2014 is its 14th year, which will see more than a hundred films screened between from 3rd to 10th April.

2013 was a stellar year for the Phoenix Film Festival, led by an excellent set of competition features, and it's going to take some real effort to outdo it. Clearly that's exactly what they're aiming to do and some of the selections certainly seem to suggest that, beginning with the opening night movie, Tom Hardy's Locke.

I don't know who the special guests are yet, but there will surely be some. I'm already starting to see filmmakers announce that they'll be there in person, always one of the biggest reasons to go to any festival, especially this one.

Here are all the films scheduled to screen this year, with titles linking to my reviews and the IMDb pages added for reference. Films screened as part of the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival are covered on a separate page.
