Thank you to everyone who has donated to the Prescott Film Festival thus far! It definitely "takes a village" to bring the film festival to you. Funding is a three-legged stool: Ticket sales, Grants and Donations from individuals. Our ticket sales continue to grow and we are thrilled about that! We are doing well with our grants, though much of the funding thus far is restricted for the projector. We could really use your help with unrestricted funding for the festival in general. This is our 10th annual festival and we want to make is SPECIAL! Your support is SO appreciated!

Oscar Buzz Films You Can Still See:
Roma: Writer/Director Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity) takes us on a person journey as he remembers his childhood in 1970's Mexico. Critics and audiences are loving this film which is available on Netflix. The first hour is, (as far as story goes) frankly, slow. But the viewer is pulled in through the beautiful cinematography (perfect shot compositions) and must wait until the second half for the story to get going. Worth the wait. The dialogue is almost documentary-like and you grow to care about each character. Except.... (well, we won't spoil it!)
Films currently at Harkins with Oscar buzz: If Beal Street Could Talk, Vice, Bohemian Rhaposidy, The Favorite and Green Book.
