Arizona Underground Film Festival is Arizona’s premier genre cult film festival, and one of the most recognized underground film festivals in the country! We make it our sole mission to showcase the work of filmmakers with defiantly independent visions. We are on a quest to represent every genre of independent film from across the world celebrating the artist, and their work.
After celebrating our 10th year, the festival has decided to expand to Phoenix.
Our next festival will be in Phoenix from Feb. 22nd to 24th 2018 at the Alamo Drafthouse cinemas 4955 S Arizona Ave, Chandler, AZ 85248
We will have our Tucson festival in September 2018 at a location yet to be announced.
We will have films from categories of Narrative, Horror, Documentaries, Experimental, Animation, and we are proud to offer an Exploitation category. Join us in the underground!
