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 7000 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.
Join us at Country Willows Inn for the Film Festival April 3rd through April 7th, 2014, and chat with some of the filmmakers who will be staying with us at the inn!
