Thanks for all the great memories.

We can’t thank everyone enough – from filmmakers who traveled more than 27 hours to join us, to our 350+ volunteers who put in incredibly long hours before, during and after the festival, to our hard-working staff, and of course, our warm and welcoming audiences.
Visit our Flickr page for photos and videos so you can re-live the good times.
Meanwhile, we’ll see you in the Fall for the Varsity World Film Week October 6-12. Mark your calendars for 2018 when the festival will be April 12-16. 

Win a FREE Director Pass to AIFF2018

Whether you attended one film or one in every time block, we hope you will take a few minutes now to complete our Audience Survey and let us know about your 2016 festival experience. Your feedback will help us improve next year's festival and provide essential information for our funders.

Complete the survey by April 21, and you will automatically be entered into a drawing to receive a FREE Director Pass to all films and events at the 17th annual Ashland Independent Film Festival.

The survey will only take a few minutes to complete. Your feedback — and your support of our non-profit arts organization — is extremely important to us. We couldn't do any of it without you! Again, THANK YOU.
Take survey now!
