Ashland Independent Film Festival (AIFF) in Ashland, Oregon announced that its 21st Annual Festival, originally scheduled for April 14 – 28, will now take place virtually on their Eventive Channel from April 1 – 10. Due to the recent circumstances and news surrounding COVID-19, the organization made the decision to postpone their Live Festival to ensure the health and safety of their patrons, in addition to the community at large.
“Our community deserves the best that this festival has to offer, and we are selecting fantastic films that are entertaining and inspiring, keeping our Ashland audiences in mind!” says Roberta Munroe, Artistic Director. “This team of staff, interns, and volunteers are working around the clock to ensure that our members see a world of filmmaking that maintains a high standard worthy of film loving Ashland. Plus, all of our filmmakers are excited to screen their work specifically for Ashland!”
As Roberta mentioned, the AIFF Staff has been hard at work planning and building a festival experience for those who love independent film and can watch from the safety and comfort of their own homes.
