Travel Info
One of the things Alaskans take pride in is showing guests a good time. We do hope you come up for the festival. Along with the festival events and movies that are happening for ten days, we also have fun events for our visiting filmmakers.

Films in Competition
We are proud to announce this year’s AIFF Films in Competition. Chosen from our Official Selections, the films represent the best of our International and Independent Cinema. The finalists in Competition will be announced in early November. We strongly encourage these filmmakers to attend the Festival and join us for our Awards Ceremony on Sunday, December 13, 2009. 

This is our opportunity to thank you for your commitment to creating the art of independent film and for sharing your work with the people of Alaska. Please give our regards to all of those dedicated people who were instrumental in producing your film.

Our next goal is to build our programs and list the schedule online by November 16, 2009. In the meantime, please contact your appropriate AIFF Programming Director for more details or call our main office. Otherwise, please be prepared to send the appropriate screening format and press information. 

If you are traveling to AIFF, please visit the travel page and fill out the online visiting filmmaker questionnaire.

We look forward to presenting your films, and we hope to meet most of you this winter. Be sure to pack your long-johns and don’t forget a camera. And thanks again for supporting the AIFF.

Yours in good film,

AIFF Programming Department
Hope to see you here!
