The following information is from our 2016 writeup:
Celebrating its seventh year in 2016, This festival is located in beautiful Tucson, Arizona. It is dedicated to showcasing the best independent, foreign and classic films, as well as celebrating the work of established and emerging directors, writers, producers and actors. The fest, through its eclectic and diverse programming, aims not only to expand the audience for cinema that challenges, inspires and entertains, but also to honor those artists whose talent and passion bring that cinema to life.
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. For five days in November, The Fest provides an intimate and unique setting for film fans to experience hand-selected festival favorites from Cannes, Sundance, SXSW, etc., and to meet internationally-renowned artists from the world of independent cinema.
Special guests of the festival have included acclaimed contemporary filmmakers such as Carlos Reygadas, Alex Cox, Chris Eyre, Larry McMurtry, Don Coscarelli, The Zellner Brothers, Bobcat Goldthwait, Kirby Dick and Richard Kelly; celebrated actors including Bruce Dern, Griffin Dunne, Rosanna Arquette, Robert Carradine, Stacy Keach, Jon Lovitz, Udo Kier, Alfonso Arau, and Rita Moreno; and industry legends such as Roger Corman, recipient of the 2012 “Lofty Lifetime Achievement Award.”
The event, produced by the award-winning, non-profit Loft Cinema (a member of the Sundance Art House Project and named “Best Movie Theatre in Tucson” by readers of the Tucson Weekly every year since 2003), 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.
