  • Attention film lovers: the Arizona International Film Festival is back.

The Arizona International Film Festival announced its 2015 dates, promising an over two-week-long celebration of film along the streetcar line. From April 9 until 26, the event will screen films at The Screening Room and more with opening night festivities at Rialto Theatre.

If the event is anything like last year's, attendees can expect over 90 international and national independent filmmakers in attendance presenting 120 films from 31 countries. Several of this year's filmmakers will participate in an educational youth program called the Festival in the Schools and visit a cross section of Tucson area classrooms at no charge to the school.

In 23 years, the festival has showcased over 2600 films for more than 150,000 people. The diverse line-up of screened films often go on to win prestigious award like Oscars and garner national acclaim. 

Senator Steve Farley will be the festival's honorary chairperson for the event. 

Passes for the entire festival are $100, including screenings, workshops and special events. You can also purchase a $25 five movie pass or individual tickets for $8 in the evening or $6 for a matinee. For a full line-up of this year's films, including descriptions, visit the festival's website.
