The 8th annual Arizona Underground Film Festival’s (AZUFF) full schedule of films includes World Premieres, North American Premieres and some of the best genre cinema on the planet. Running September 18 through 26 at The Screening Room, AZUFF is one of the premier genre cult film festivals in the country. As AZUFF sponsors, this Ticket Tuesday Bookmans offers four winners each a pair of festival passes — a huge jackpot. These passes allow you and your BAE to see every film the festival offers and includes other exclusive privileges.

Arizona Underground Film Festival

Bookmans sponsors screenings of The Real Miyagi, Songs She Wrote about People She Knows and The Black Fly. The documentary The Real Miyagi directed by Kevin Derek details the life of Fumio Demura, the greatest karate master of all time. In Songs She Wrote about People She Knows, a timid officer worker becomes both pariah and Pied Piper when she unleashes her scathingly honest pop compositions upon friends and co-workers. Inspired by true events, The Black Fly tells the tale of Jake and Noel Henson, estranged brothers haunted by a troubled past.

AZUFF also features the world premieres of Thirty-nine, Mania and Date of the Dead. Thirty-nine is a jagged journey directed by Josh Evans and starring Natasha Gregson Wagner, Josh Evans and Robert Wagner. Horror actress turned director Jessica Cameron’s new film Mania was written and produced by Tucson native Jonathan Higgins. The local film and horror comedy Date of the Dead was shot entirely in Tucson with Tucson actors and showcases three horror genres.

The festival screens many other films including the controversial documentary War of Lies and the over the top comedy Bunny The Killer Thing. We encourage you to check out the full AZUFF schedule. Support independent cinema and local filmmakers by taking in a show or two or the entire AZUFF festival.
