IFP Phoenix is welcoming a new host for Filmmaker Fusion – Tyler Riggs!
A native of Michigan, Riggs moved to Phoenix in the mid-aughts to get the hell away from 9 months of crap weather. He first got bit by the writing bug doing satirical recaps of his team’s flag football games. What started as an excuse to mock his friends lack of athletic ability quickly snowballed into a passion for storytelling.
Desperate for a way to channel his creative energy, Riggs got his first start in filmmaking two years ago with the IFP Breakout Challenge. His passion for film and learning (and the fact that everyone we asked before him said no) made him a perfect fit as the new host for the Filmmaker Fusion event.
We are really excited to welcome him aboard as this will free up Aaron (sorry to disappoint you, he’s not going anywhere) to bring more and more exciting things for local filmmakers!
Please come out and say hi during our first Filmmaker Fusion with Tyler as host Wednesday, December 20th, 2017 from 7-9pm at Scottsdale Community College.
