Loft Film Fest Returns to Loft Cinema
The Loft Film Fest, presented by Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment and the National Endowment for the Arts, runs November 8 through 16 at The Loft Cinema. Passes and individual tickets are on sale now. Produced by the award-winning, nonprofit Loft Cinema, the festival is fiercely committed to continuing its tradition of bringing world-class film festival programming to Tucson, connecting audiences with artists and celebrating the unique spirit of independent cinema.
Described by Filmmaker Magazine as being “geared truly toward cinephiles of nearly every stripe,” and praised for its “phantasmagorical programming…and astute choice of guests,” the Loft Film Fest was created in 2010 as a showcase for the very best independent, foreign and classic cinema. For nine days in November, the Loft Film Fest provides an intimate and unique setting for film fans to experience hand-selected festival favorites from the world’s top film festivals, including Cannes and Sundance, and to meet internationally-renowned artists from the world of independent cinema.
Opening night will feature a special screening of Revenge of the Nerds with star Curtis Armstrong (“Booger”). Other filmmakers scheduled to appear include Allison Anders (Gas, Food Lodging), Frances Causey (The Long Shadow) and Oscar-nominated director Kirby Dick (The Hunting Ground).
