Let’s Go to the Movies

The Scottsdale International Film Festival is about to wrap up its latest run (think 36 films from 27 different countries), so if you’ve got the time — or better yet, a very long lunch break — why not catch a flick while you still can?

The festival is still screening movies today and tomorrow, and the final film to play on the big screen is The Way by Emilio Estevez… Dad, Martin Sheen, also stars in the movie about an American doctor who, after losing his adult son, decides to follow his son’s journey from the French Pyrenees to Spain’s Santiago de Compostela, to better understand who he was.

Films screened at this festival are mostly by foreign directors, and in keeping with the festival’s mission to promote and “foster a meaningful understanding of the world’s cultures, lifestyles, religions, and ethnicities,” many of the stories told are those of people striving to make a difference or seeking change…

Check out the schedule of films still playing and make a date to go see a movie before the festival shuts its door for another year.

The Scottsdale International Film Festival is at the Harkins Shea 14 located at 7354 E. Shea Blvd. For more information, log onto www.scottsdalefilmfestival.com or call 602-410-1047.
