Ashland is home to a growing, in both quality, and size, indepenent film festival.
The Ashland Independent Film Festival received a grant this year from the Acadamy of Motion Pictures (you know, the Oscars) to help bring talent to Ashland.
The seventh annual ashland independent film festival will be held April 3-7, 2008. Consistently each year, 90+% of the seats at the ashland independent film festival are filled for all five days. 2/3 of the shows sell out to engaged, arts-oriented audiences. Last April 6,000 film-goers purchased over 15,000 tickets to 92 feature, documentary and short films.
The festival takes place on the five screens of the intimate art-deco Varsity Theatre and at the Historic Ashland Armory - within a few blocks of each other in historic downtown Ashland, Oregon. See our archives for past film selections and special guests.
I have volunteered for several years to help this fine event take place. One of the many things that makes Living in Ashland Great!!!!
