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! 

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!
