In 2009, Filmstock was founded with the intention of connecting audiences with creative visionaries, and quickly became known as Arizona’s #1 name in short film!

A submission to Filmstock meant a chance for your short film to be played at the festival,. The festival included parties, and pretty big audiences! 

Each Official Selection for the festival was reviewed by notable figures in the industry and were also up for votes by the audience, so everyone could get involved. 

At least eight awards were handed out at each of the four Filmstock Film Festival events throughout the year, so there was always a big opportunity for your work to be seen and celebrated by industry members and audiences alike.

Awards given at the festival included:

Best of Fest
Best Director
Best Cinematography
Best Original Score
Best Sound Design
Best Actor
Best Production Design
Audience Choice
Barry E Wallace Citizenship Award


We hope to see the return of this festival one day!
