Fresh off a successful five-day event we are proud to announce that The Imitation Game earned the 2014 Audience Award for Best Film. The film, staring Benedict Cumberbatch, has already won many film festival awards including the coveted People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. Festivalgoers were riveted by the story of Alan Turing, a British mathematician, logician, cryptologist, and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII.More than 9,000 attendees enjoyed the 14th annual Scottsdale International Film Festival from Oct. 9-13 taking in many special advance screenings and premieres. Along with The Imitation Game audiences raved about Wild, Run Boy Run, Drunktown's Finest, and Rudderless.
We’re already looking forward to next year’s event in early November and to our newly formed collaboration with the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
