Chandler Diversity Office launches CINETIME 

The Chandler Diversity Office, along with the City's Communications and Public Affairs Department, has partnered with the Chandler International Film Festival to debut eight independent films beginning this June, with the potential to add more. 

Each film will be shown Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening for an entire month on the City's cable channel (Cox Channel 11, CenturyLink Channel 8502 and on Orbital Cable in Sun Lakes). The films also will be available online at and City’s YouTube channel. In addition to Chandler, CINETIME will be shared with other local cities' cable channels.

The selected filmmakers are from California, Texas, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The filmmakers also had the opportunity to share a question-and-answer session after their films, which will be included as provided. The first featured film is “Popcorn and Chocolate,” which is about a tenacious middle school band student selling items for fundraisers that unknowingly helps a grief stricken military family recover from their loss.

Other films include: 
  • “Water”: A four-minute journey to some of the planet's most spectacular glaciers, waterfalls, beaches, rivers and waterways. 
  • “Follow Me Down Again”: An art/dance film based on the story of Icarus.
  • “Game of Souls” (Episode 1): A girl travels back in time through an enchanted storybook and is confronted with all the myths from that book.
  • “Uprise”: An all-new animated short film that uses advanced tools like animation and motion capture to inspire the possibilities for an entire generation of upcoming indie filmmakers.
