TUCSON, Ariz. - Oct. 4, 2022 - PRLog -- The 7th Annual Int'l Wild Bunch Film Festival rides into Tucson at the Galaxy Theatres, 100 S. Houghton Rd.

This year the festival is proud to announce it's first annual Robert Shelton Award. It will be presented by a Shelton family member to a person or business that has played or is playing a key role in helping bring filmmaking to Southern Arizona. Robert Shelton was the founder of Old Tucson Studios and a longtime advocate for the Southern Arizona movie industry. Also presented are the Charlie LeSueur and Jerry Vance awards and others.

"With Old Tucson Movie studios, Mescal movie set and other western movie locations in the area, western films are looking great for the future in southern Arizona. It helped when Arizona enacted the Arizona Motion Picture Production Program, an annual film and TV tax incentive for qualified productions. It's an exciting time for everyone involved", Film Festival director Rock Whitehead says.

Festival hours are Thurs 3 to 10pm, Fri 3 to 10pm, Sat 10am to 10pm & Sun 10am to 3:45pm, plus a book signing daily by the festival's co-founder, author and actress Brenda Whitehead with her western novel "Eli Elder".
