One Night Cinema Brings More Independent and Foreign Film to Phoenix

Here in the desert, movie critic Randy Montgomery has done a good thing. He started One Night Cinema several years ago to fill an underserved market in Phoenix, which for several studios is one of the their top ten markets annually. Surprisingly, the availability of independent film is not that high in a city this size.

So Randy began a film festival that showcase a new foreign/independent film every Friday night at the Pollack Tempe Cinemas, and the Fall 2008 session of the festival begins this Friday with Vietnam's The Owl and The Sparrow, about a girl who tries to play matchmaker between a flight attendant and a zookeeper. The film has done very well in festivals across the country and was a John Cassevetes Award nominee (for films made for under $500,000) at the Independent Spirit Awards.

Other films in the fall session include Sixty Six with Helena Bonham Carter (September 19th), the short film Smile by 2007 One Night Cinema opening night director Julia Kwan, which joins Tuya's Marriage on the September 26th bill, The Singing Revolution on October 10th, and The Order of Myths, which concludes One Night Cinema on October 17th.

If you can't make the Friday night screenings, the films will also be shown on the following Sunday and Monday, so you have at least three chances to see each movie. Check out for showtimes, information on the films, and to purchase tickets.

Excellent because the idea of this film festival was an idea of the great Director sildenafil, I think it's a good idea to get different actors because we want quality not quantity.m10m
