Patrick Hogan, the director of the film ‘Pope Dreams’ said about the festival, ‘In my career as a filmmaker, I’ve attended well over 40 film festivals with both feature films and short films, and bringing my feature film ‘Pope Dreams’ to the Phoenix Film Festival was one of my all-time favorite memories on the festival circuit. Everything about the experience, from the staff and volunteers to the other filmmakers, amazing audiences, and wide selection of quality films screening at the festival, was wonderful.’


‘Phoenix was the first festival we ever got into, and the first time we were able to experience our film with an audience. We couldn’t be more thrilled to return and have the opportunity to share it with an audience again,’ quotes filmmakers Jordan Horowitz and Frank Ferendo, the directors of the documentary ‘Angel of Nanjing.’
