Weekend Plans? How About Apocalypse Later Film Festival as an Option


The Two Gay Geeks want to give a great shout out to the Apocalypse Later Film Festival happening this weekend in Downtown Phoenix.

Hal Astell has good taste in films and he has chosen a great crop for this third year of the festival.

If you need plans for this weekend, this is the ticket.


Apocalypse Later Film Festival

What is ALIFF?

ALIFFF is an annual dedicated genre-based film festival in Phoenix, AZ.

As we grow ALIFFF, we will remain true to our core ideals, which are to find the very best and most original genre films from across the globe and screen them to audiences at as low a cost as is possible without sacrificing quality.
Our mantra is ‘quality, originality, community’.

Where is ALIFF?

Our home is the Phoenix Center for the Arts at 1202 N 3rd St, Phoenix, AZ 85004.

It’s conveniently located in downtown Phoenix right off I-10 and there’s free parking right next to the building. It’s about a quarter of a mile from the light rail and about half a mile from Central Ave. & McDowell Rd.

At PCA, we’re in the Third Street Theater, which seats a comfortable 210. The venue allows the sale of alcohol, so we have a selection of beers and wine on sale. Concessions are also for sale but we’ll still have free popcorn throughout the event.

When is ALIFF?

Genre festivals are traditionally held late in the year and we’ve been on the middle weekend in October from our very first year, part of the run-up to Hallowe’en.
In 2018, we’re running two full days: Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October.

Who is ALIFF?

ALIFFF was founded by Hal C. F. Astell, who has been part of the Arizona film festival community since 2007.

Hal is a film critic and award-winning author with five books on film published by Apocalypse Later Press. He curates the Apocalypse Later Roadshow at conventions across the southwest. He works for a number of other film festivals as a screener, programmer and/or judge. He explores the history of cinema at Apocalypse Later, reviewing the films that most critics don’t.


Cost is $50 for a full event pass ($60 on the door).
That includes access to all films over two full days.
Parking and popcorn are free!
Cash bar and concessions.
