The Festival’s Opening Night celebration of cinematic excellence brings together valley tastemakers, film enthusiasts, and filmmakers to discover all that is new in the world of film. “Any time you have the chance to kick off the festival with a comedy, particularly with a cast like this, you jump at it. It should be a fun night!” says Executive Director Jason Carney.

“We are thrilled to show THE COMEBACK TRAIL to our local Phoenix Community.

I'm the Sr. Film Writer and Community Manager for tmc.io. I write, direct and produce short films with my production company, Good Stew Productions. Though it's difficult to answer this question when asked, I'd say my favorite movie is “The Big Chill.” I enjoy photography, poetry, and hiking and I adore animals, especially elephants. I live in Arizona and feel it's an outstanding and inspirational place to live.
