2014 Astoria International Film Festival*
We invite you to join us.
An intimate film festival
where you can view, learn about, and discuss
dramatic, documentary, and short films
by international and USA independent filmmakers.
Offering a curated viewing experience,
complemented by intellectual and social amenities
-- Q&A sessions, filmmaking workshops, cocktail receptions --
and access to select filmmakers.
1 weekend: October 17, 18 and 19, 2014
AIFF is dedicated to bringing independent filmmakers from around the world and their work to an appreciative audience. We feature films that we love. We're captivated by the respective director’s compelling subjects, storytelling, cinematography skills, and by the ways in which their work can enrich our lives. We then screen the films in a unique, experientially distinctive film festival setting.
“A very classy film festival.”
Dustin Morrow, Award-winning Oregon filmmaker
