ASHLAND, Ore. -- The Ashland Independent Film Festival (AIFF) is seeing a record turnout in film goers this weekend for the lineup of mostly documentary films. Directors said this year's festival has already sold more tickets than last year and more are expected to sell throughout the next two days.
Saturday marked day three of the five day festival and two shows were completely sold out at the Ashland Armory.
For more than seven years, the festival has transformed the Armory into a cinema to showcase films.
Another screen was opened by one of the festival's sponsors a few years ago at the Ashland Street Cinema. This has allowed AIFF to open up more films to audience members. Some of the types of films shown at the Ashland Street Cinema include family shorts, student competition films and local competition films.
The films run through Sunday at the Armory, ending with the film Batkid at noon followed by the Awards Celebration.
The rest of the films will wrap up on Monday at the Varsity Theatre.
