Kids' Day at the Phoenix Film Festival

Kids’ Day is a free event and a  great way for children of all ages to come out and experience the festival. They can select from a series of hands-on activity stations focusing on different aspects of film production and geared to various age and ability levels.

From coloring black line reproductions of the festival poster for the youngest to acting and creating their own short films for the oldest, kids will love this action-packed morning.  Everyone will get a kick out of the soundtrack station, where they create a musical soundtrack to a fun film, and the screenwriting station, where they write a script  “Mad Lib” style.

Stations are age-appropriate and run the full gamut of the filmmaking process.  At the conclusion of the activities, the whole family is invited to view the family-friendly film screenings that morning and afternoon.

RIO

Please, Please tell me now!

Is There Something I Should Know?

YES.

This may be Planet Earth (ba ba ba bu ba ba ba ba), but Saturday night March 28 at the 2015 Phoenix Film Festival will be no Ordinary World with the addition of Rio, the Duran Duran tribute band!

Festival pros know the place to be (when you're not at a film, of course) is the Notorious Party Pavilion, but we're going bigger than ever this year with the addition of The Wild Boys of Rio.

So when you're not watching Girls on Film, you need to be at Phoenix's Big Thing: Rio at the 2015 Phoenix Film Festival.

Union of the Snake. (pretty much impossible to fit in to a sentence, but a totally necessary reference for this post)

Marisa Ronstadt & The Know It Alls

Marisa Ronstadt hails from a talented family based in Arizona whose name was made famous by her cousin, the multiplatinum recording artist, Linda Ronstadt. A performer at the age of seven, Marisa’s musical tastes are rooted in mariachi, R&B/soul, and rock, but like many Mexican-American’s raised in the U.S., her influences range from Lola Beltran and Pedro Infante, to The Beatles and Marvin Gaye. As early as the age of eight, Marisa was already performing big band, rock & roll, country, and top 40 music with a musical revue in Phoenix called the Amigos. She was a member of Amigos for ten years.

Now Marisa calls Los Angeles her home, where she has developed ties with major local talent such as GRAMMY® award winners Quetzal Flores and Martha Gonzalez of the band Quetzal, Los Lobos, David Gomez and Jeremy Keller of the band Monte Carlo 76, R&B/Soul sensation Aloe Blacc (“Wake Me Up” and “I Need a Dollar”), and the singer-songwriter/rapper Maya Jupiter. In 2009, Marisa recorded and released an album as the lead vocalist for the band Monte Carlo 76 titled Marisela, produced by Quetzal Flores and Martha Gonzalez. After touring with Monte Carlo 76, she began songwriting with band member Jeremy Keller, and before she knew it, they had given birth to a new band, MARISA RONSTADT AND THE KNOW-IT-ALLS.
