In addition to the education work performed by IFP Phoenix, the foundation operates the Phoenix Film Festival, the Phoenix Film Society, the International Horror and Sci-Fi Festival, and the Arizona Student Film Festival.
The Phoenix Film Festival has been named one of The 25 Coolest Film Festivals by MovieMaker Magazine and is a program of the 501c(3) non-profit Phoenix Film Foundation.
