Film Information

The Phoenix Incident

Inspired by true events. The Phoenix Incident is based on the largest UFO sighting in North America known as the Phoenix Lights. Blurring the line between fiction and reality, the fact based, sci-fi thriller revolves around a military conspiracy and the controversial missing person’s case surrounding the infamous 1997 event. With the support of the victims’ families, along with classified military documentation, cockpit recordings, Air Force pilot interviews, actual FLIR footage, and first-hand recovered video evidence, The Phoenix Incident exposes the military’s engagement with extraterrestrial contact, and the collateral damage of 4 civilians.

Keith Arem / 2015 / 82 minutes / English / USA

A Film by Vera Vaughn

In this ghost story for the digital age, filmmaker Vera Vaughn works late into the night, editing her suspense/thriller about a woman jeopardized by a mysterious home intruder. But when she is interrupted by a knock at the door, Vera’s world takes a frightening turn toward the surreal as life threatens to imitate art — or is it the other way around?
