We have another world premier movie at the August Get Your PHX.
NOTE: We are starting this event later than our usual events. We will start this event at 7:30.
A few months ago, we highlighted a local filmmaker, Matty Steinkamp, and a the documentary that he has produced called Play, The Documentary.
So, naturally, we called dibs on hosting one of his two upcoming premiers for the August Get Your PHX event on the 18th. Since seating is limited, we are asking you to buy your tickets right away.
Play The Documentary is a film created in hopes of inspiring more people to play music. The documentary was shot in locations all over the US, in addition to captivating footage from Ireland, over the course of two years and features over 40 musicians each playing their particular instrument and discussing their perception of the personal impact of playing music. The film also touches on US budget cuts to music education in recent years and what is being done to combat the cuts. In particular, the film delves into the work of game-changing national nonprofit Little Kids Rock program.
First time filmmaker Matty Steinkamp is excited to see the impact the film is having locally and looks forward to seeing similar impact in other cities across the US. Steinkamp says, “I want to help create a positive change in my community, and throughout the world if possible. This film, I hope can achieve that change.”
The screenings will help raise funds for Arizona School of the Arts and there will be a silent auction with proceeds directly benefiting Phoenix-based music and arts programs. Tickets for the screenings are $12 and are on sale now.
