Ashland Independent Film Festival
Ashland, Oregon / April 2019 / ashlandfilm.org
Submitting to screen at this five-day Southern Oregon fest comes with the promise that your film will be viewed and evaluated by more than one screener. Ashland Independent Film Festival’s crowd of over 7,000 fills out the art-deco Varsity Theatre, historic Ashland Armory, and other venues to take in over 90 doc, feature, and short selections. In 2017, maverick moviemaker Alex Cox took his Japanese-inflected Western Tombstone-Rashomon to AIFF for its world premiere; panels dug into on-screen activism and indie doc journalism in the age of fake news; and Pride Award-winner Jenni Olson conducted a queer film production workshop for Southern Oregon University students. Consistently high-quality programming.
