Almost Famous Film Festival
Sometimes a movie screens for one night only, and sometimes it'll show for weeks -- months even. That's why when it comes to catching an independent or limited-release film at a local theater, planning ahead is crucial.

Planners that we are, we've selected five must-see flicks screening in the Valley this month. Stock up on your preferred salty, sweet snacks and check out our picks ...

5. Almost Famous Film Festival

Regional filmmakers competed in the 48-Hour Film Challenge last weekend, during which teams had to create a short movie (one to five minutes in length) that included a theme of lost love, a character setting a clock, and an utterance of the phrase, "This could get complicated." Judges selected their 20 favorite quick flicks from the competition, and those will screen at AMC Arizona Center 24 tonight at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8. See more here.

4. Friends with Kids
With a stellar ensemble, including Jon Hamm, Maya Rudolph, Adam Scott, Kristen Wiig, Chris O'Dowd and Jennifer Westfeldt (who wrote and directed the film), Friends With Kids addresses the turning point in life when settling down not only becomes inevitable -- but everyone around seems to relish (or, at least, inadvertently step into) the major life change that is baby-making.

Friends with Kids opens March 9.

On March 23rd in Tempe at MADCAP Theaters, I'll be screening BATTLE ROYALE, a 2001 Japanese film by Kinji Fukasaku that filmmaker's like Quentin Tarantino have named as their favorite film of all time, as part of CULT CLASSICS. It's been held back from distribution by Toei for over 10 years because of its theme matter of school kids pitted in a game show contest to the death. But if you'd like to check it out, this is the exclusive Phoenix engagement, we're the only group showing it in the state aside from the Loft in Tucson. For more info check out or
