We have a plan for rain!
Not to worry, the shows will still go on, regardless of the weather. The outdoor events will all take place inside the Scottish Rite, so join us for a warm, dry movie inside.

Venues will include th Historic Scottish Rite Cathedral, located at 160 South Scott Avenue, The Fox Tucson Theatre at 17 West Congress, the AC Marriott Hotel at 151 Broadway Blvd. and on our outdoor screen on Scott Avenue South of Broadway.

Film Fest Tucson was created for you — local Tucsonans and visitors alike who love great storytelling, great cinema and conversation about both. We’ve created this festival because we believe there are more stories to be told, and by sharing this festival with other important Tucson arts and culture entities, we all benefit. We hope you will continue to support film all year long, and we’ll see you each October for Film Fest Tucson.
