To unleash the movie of the historic event, we went back to where it all started: Phoenix, Arizona, birthplace of the original Alice Cooper group. The Phoenix Film Festival honored the film its first award: The Copper Wing Award for Best Documentary Short. (The running time barely fell under their cutoff for a feature classification.) Dallas International Film Festival bestowed the Audience Award for Best Documentary to the film as well. The Film Festival World Tour continue to book premiere shows in new cities constantly. You’ll be able to see all the new festival dates here.

More announcements to follow soon. Check back frequently.
