In support of the arts and entertainment in Downtown Tucson, the Tucson Film and Music Festival (TFMF) is excited to announce unique entertainment partnerships with Second Saturdays and the Rialto Theater.
During its 6th annual festival, which takes place October 7-11, 2010, TFMF will co-curate the live music on the Scott Ave outdoor stage and an outdoor screening at the October 9th Second Saturdays event. To honor the Rialto Theatre’s 90th Anniversary Celebration, anyone who purchases an all-access badge for the festival — available now at
— can also attend screenings of the classic film “The Mine with the Iron Door,” during the Rialto’s anniversary event in conjunction with the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation.
TFMF would also like to welcome sponsor Cox Communications, the third largest cable provider and a multi-service broadband communications company serving nearly three million residential and business product subscribers in Arizona. The festival also extends a hearty thanks to returning sponsors the Hanson Film Institute, KLPX/KFMA and the Tucson Film Office.
â€œOur sponsor partners are key to making the festival happen every year and we are grateful for their support of indie film and music,â€? comments Toubassi. â€œThey know the value of creative expression and that a thriving artistic community is a part of what makes Tucson special.â€?
