Phoenix Film Festival Reveals Poster Art for 2019 Festival


The Two Gay Geeks were delighted to attend an event held by Phoenix Film Festival to start our vacation from our day jobs on Friday evening at the Capital Grill in Scottsdale, AZ.

We had a great time chatting and getting to know other film geeks.


Phoenix Film Festival Reveals Poster Art for 2019 Festival

November 30, 2018 – Scottsdale, AZ – Jason Carney, Executive Director of Phoenix Film Festival, played host to a nice crowd of folks at the Capital Grill in Scottsdale. The crowd was made up of film critics, sponsors, Phoenix Film Society members, and others to socialize and network, but most of all to see the new Phoenix Film Festival Poster Art for the 2019 festival.

As many may or may not know Phoenix Film Festival has a rich history of producing poster art featuring their mascot “Camera Head” in various stylized classic movie posters. This year is no exception. Marty Fretage along with, Lisa Marie Lara, Brittany Rislund, Alex Patrick Merrill, and Amy Betts have created five new posters for the 2019 festival and they are fabulous.

The event was billed as The Art of Film and had live music, some really great appetizers, and beverages and featured a raffle and silent auction. The raffle and silent auction proceeds were to benefit the Phoenix Film Festival student education programs.

Each of the posters was wrapped in black paper (with a little too much tape, according to Jason) and revealed throughout the evening.

(You will have to forgive the photos… I only had my iPhone and there is only so much post you can do to a crooked photo and limited experience)
