Ashland Independent Film Festival
The Ashland Independent Film Festival is five days of the highest quality independent film in this historic town the Washington Post called, "a dream you'll never want to leave." Every Spring, Southern Oregon is buzzing with the excitement of the AIFF. Over 7,000 film lovers gather at the historic art-deco Varsity Theatre in downtown to watch over 80 films in five days. Filmmakers of the documentaries, features and shorts from around the world come to engage with the audience after each screening and at the festival’s Opening Night Bash and Award Celebration parties with local wine, beer and gourmet food. Special guests have included Helen Hunt, Albert Maysles, Bruce Campbell and more. The film festival is one of the reasons Ashland is included in the popular travel guide A Thousand Places to See Before You Die.
The Oregonian newspaper's Shawn Levy, said the AIFF "offers movie lovers that same sense of being in a magical place...Southern Oregon doesn't have anything else like it nor, in fact, do most places on Earth."
Festival membership passes are available year round and individual tickets go on sale in March. Members of the AIFF have access to our ticket pre-sale, the members-only line for first entry into the theatres, and more.
