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—all at Loft Cinema in Tucson. For eight days, from November 7 to 14, the Loft Film Fest provides an intimate and unique setting for film fans to experience hand-selected festival favorites from Cannes, Sundance and SXSW and to meet internationally-renowned artists from the world of independent cinema.

Special guests of the Loft Film Fest have included acclaimed contemporary filmmakers such as Carlos Reygadas, Alex Cox, Chris Eyre, Charles Burnett, Larry McMurtry, Diana Ossana, Allison Anders, Don Coscarelli, The Zellner Brothers, Bobcat Goldthwait, Kirby Dick and Richard Kelly; celebrated actors including Rita Moreno, Bruce Dern, Griffin Dunne, Rosanna Arquette, Robert Carradine, Curtis Armstrong, Stacy Keach, Alfonso Arau, Jon Lovitz and Udo Kier; and industry legends such as Roger Corman, recipient of the 2012 “Lofty Achievement Award”.

The Loft Film Fest, produced by the award-winning, nonprofit Loft Cinema, 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.
