Founded in 2001, Scottsdale International Film Festival is an annual 10-day destination event that connects audiences with award-winning cinema from around the globe. During its 20-year history, the Festival has presented more than 700 films – ranging from major Academy Award winners to undiscovered indie gems – to more than 110,000 attendees.

Whether film scholars or film lovers, most will agree that a film is an art form that is both a reflection of our everyday life and a means to escape it. The film can take us away while at the same time embed us in the truth of other people’s stories, some beautiful, some cruel, and some unimaginable. Our attendees eagerly anticipate each season’s program of varying tales, contexts, and characters both rare and relatable.
