Phoenix Film Festival and International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival return just in time

Phoenix Film FestivalHave you ever wanted to have a time machine so you could travel back to past Phoenix Film Festivals and International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festivals to see all of the incredible movies you missed? Well, sorry, we can’t help you there… but we can tell you about the 2016 festivals where you can watch multiple films about time travel. And considering that you don’t have to worry about screwing up the space/time continuum isn’t it really better this way?

That’s right, this year’s Phoenix Film Festival (PFF) / International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival (IHSFF) will feature more time-traveling plot-lines than Doc Brown could shake a “flux capacitor” at! [NOTE: Nerdvana in no way encourages or endorses the shaking of flux capacitors.]

In the IHSFF competition film, Parallel, a “brilliant mathematician travels through time and space in search of the knowledge that would allow him to control his life and alter the events of his past.”

The History of Time TravelThe History of Time Travel is a “A fictional documentary about the creation of the world’s first time machine, the men who created it, and the unintended ramifications it has on world events.”

In Displacement “a young physics student must find a way to reverse a deadly quantum time anomaly and solve the apparent murder of her boyfriend, while battling short-term memory loss and time slips caused by the event.”

If Time-travel is not your bag, there is plenty of other genre programming for your film-going pleasure, like zombies, maniacal killers, supernatural evil, crazy clowns and even a found-footage horror anthology called, The Dark Tapes.

If you like-a some Loki, fanboy (and girl) favorite Tom Hiddleston’s new movie, High Rise, is also one of the featured films at this year’s big show.

The PFF festivities kick off on Thursday night, April 7, 2016, with the premiere of the coming-of-age comedy, Morris from America, with proceeds going to the Phoenix Film Foundation’s education programs. The cinematic celebration runs through the April 7 – 10 weekend and the following week until Thursday, April 14.

The PFF/IHSFF is located at the Harkins Scottsdale 101 in Scottsdale. Get the latest information on the festival’s films and see their trailers, review show times and purchase tickets at:
