Phoenix Incident

Fathom Events has reached out to XFN with a ticket giveaway for a one-night-only screening event of the thriller The Phoenix Incident. Featuring an exclusive never-before-seen documentary about UFOs and a Q&A from the 2016 International UFO Congress, the film will be shown in select theaters nationwide on March 10 7:30pm (local time). 

On March 13, 1997 thousands of people claimed to have simultaneously witnessed unexplainable lights in the Phoenix, Arizona night sky. That included the then-state Governor Fife Symington. What were the lights? To this day it remains a mystery and footage of the incidents has been used in documentaries, films, and numerous media re-enactments on the subject of UFOs. 

The Phoenix Incident is a fictionalized heart-pounding thriller based on this real-life event. Written and directed by gaming talent director Keith Arem (Call of Duty, Titanfall) and starring Troy Baker (famed gaming actor), this one-night event uses whistleblower testimony, recovered military footage and eyewitness accounts to create a sci-fi thriller that examines the US military’s alleged engagement of alien spacecrafts.

Fathom Events is giving XFN followers 4 tickets (two giveaway winners) for the best UFO-related explanation of what happened on March 13, 1997. Tweet your best explanation using the hashtag #PhoenixIncidentContest for a chance to win a pair of tickets for the screening at your local theater. The most creative answer will take the prize. Entries must be submitted by 11:59pm March 6th. We will pick winners on March 7th. Entries can also be submitted via email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
