No Festival Required Selection 2010

Steve Weiss of No Festival Required is the man behind most of the quirkiest film screenings in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. Chances are if you're watching a documentary, an experimental art film or a selection of shorts outside of a festival environment here he's the man who's promoting it. We found him on a rare excursion of his into genre cinema, showing Blood Car at the sadly now defunct Chandler Cinemas and have since happily followed him to a number of locations.

One regular location is the Phoenix Art Museum, where the films aren't just interesting, they're also free. Here's a list of No Festival Required screenings scheduled for the 2009/2010 season. Best of them all is his annual selection of short films which has been running for much longer than the three years we've turned up.

Here are all the films shown this year, with film titles linking to my reviews and the IMDb pages added for reference, where appropriate. The films are ordered as per the screening schedule.
