2017 AZSFF laurels.jpg

We had the most submissions we've ever had for the Arizona Student Film Festival! Students from all over Arizona entered the 2017 AZSFF and we're  proud to announce our finalists! These students receive Filmmaker Passes to the Phoenix Film Festival and will have their films shown on the big screen at the Harkins Scottsdale 101 during the Festival. Plus, one of these talented filmmakers will take home the Grand Prize -- a $1,000 scholarship!

The AZSFF Screening will take place on Saturday, April 8 at 9AM at the Harkins Scottsdale 101 as a part of the Phoenix Film Festival. Tickets will go fast for this event so please purchase early as seats are limited.
