The committee for the Southern Arizona Independent Film Festival wishes to thank all the sponsors and participants who made the 3rd annual festival a resounding success.
The festival received financial or other support from The Arizona Commission on the Arts, The National Endowment for the Arts, The Legacy Foundation, Valley TeleCom, Sulphur Springs Electric Cooperative, Inc., Chiricahua Real Estate, The Arizona Range News, The Rex Allen Arizona Cowboy Museum & Willcox Hall of Fame and the City of Willcox. We received generous food and beverage donations from Stumbleweeds, Pizza Hut, Safeway and Pepsi. We are deeply appreciative.
Special thanks goes out to the Willcox Historic Theater, especially Gary Clement and Michelle Biniewski, for providing not only a beautiful venue but also all the necessary logistical support.
Thanks to all the filmmakers from all over the world who sent their wonderful short films. We wish we could have shown them all. Congratulations to all the winners.
Thanks to Randy Murray, the keynote speaker, who brought his experience and wit to the young filmmakers and presented his award-winning film, The Joe Show.
Thanks to our round table panelists: Josh Kasselman, Tim Flood and Justin Kreinbrink for an interesting discussion.
And thank you to all those wonderful people who came out to share in this Film Festival. We hope you enjoyed it!
