The A3F

Founded in 2005, the A3F hosts annual challenges for filmmakers in Arizona and the Southwest.

"WOW! WOW! WOW! That was my reaction last night -- as I watched your awesome festival. The venue was impressive, the filmmakers were so proud and excited, and it was so well organized! You've really done something great here and deserve a million congratulations." — Lisa Thompson

"Truly an impressive event. I felt like I was at the Oscars! The filmmakers will always be there, but the friends, family and general public would be impressed by the amazing professionalism. A cut above all the other local film events I have attended." — Joshua Provost.
