The internationally award-winning film, "The Phoenix Lights Documentary," premiered March 13th 2005 at the Harkins Shea-14 Theater in Scottsdale, Arizona to sold-out audiences. Harkins extended the run for five weeks and added additional locations in Arizona, including Prescott and Sedona.

The film won Best Director at the 2005 New York International Independent Film & Video Festival and was an official selection for the 2005 Los Angeles International Independent Film & Video Festival.

The documentary screened at several theaters in California, including a V.I.P. screening at Warner Brothers Studios August 2005, and was presented at several major UFO conferences including the 36th Annual International MUFON Symposium in Denver, Colorado and the X-Conference in Washington, DC.

The Phoenix Lights Documentary won Best Documentary at the First Annual Sci-Fi Festival in Tempe, Arizona and was nominated Best Documentary Feature at the San Fernando Valley International Film Festival, March 2006.

On March 12th, 2006 the documentary was presented in three exclusive shows at the Harkins Shea-14 Theatre in Scottsdale, Arizona in celebration of the 9th anniversary of the event. The first two shows completely sold out the largest theater. Also in March, the film screened at The Hericane Festival of Women's Art in Saskatoon, Canada.

In May 2006, The Phoenix Lights Documentary was an Official Selection at the New Jersey International Film & Screenplay Festival where it was nominated for Best Documentary Feature. In addition, the film was officially selected into the Rhode Island International Film Festival and the Gloria Film Festival where it also received a Best Documentary Feature nomination.

In August 2006, The Phoenix Lights Documentary sold out Landmarks' Crossroads Cinema in Boulder, Colorado. A year earlier, the documentary sold out a large theater in Nevada City, California. The large turnout was very unusual for such a small town which prompted the theater to add two additional screenings.

In October 2006, the film was an Official Selection at the FAIF International Film Festival (Mann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood), the Westwood International Film Festival, Australian International Film Festival and the Brilliant Light Festival in Los Angeles. To date, the film has received three nominations for Best Documentary Feature and two international awards for Best Documentary Feature and Best Director.

Currently the film is being distributed by Vanguard Cinema. The documentary has been available at Netflix, Hollywood Video, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Best Buys, Target, Fryes Electronics and many other chains and nationally on pay-per-view cable networks.
