The Scottsdale International Film Festival showcases independent and foreign films in an attempt to help us have a better appreciation for the diversity of cultures, lifestyles and beliefs from around the world. According to their web site, the selected films “champion stories of people who stand their ground to make a difference and who seek change for the better.” Through film, the group provides audiences with a glimpse into other cultures, perspectives and philosophies that shape our world and our lives. The event has been gaining momentum since 2001 and now rivals those across the country.
Even if you’re not looking to volunteer, mark your calendar for this year’s event – September 30 to October 4. There’s bound to be several films you won’t want to miss.
