ASHLAND, Ore.- Under the shining Los Angeles lights, at 89-year-old Klamath Falls native James Ivory became the oldest Oscar winner to win the award. He took home the Oscar for best adapted screenplay. 

Ivory had a room full of Ashland Independent Film Festival supporters rooting him on at the Historic Ashland Armory.

Richard Herskowitz, Executive Director says, "James Ivory received our lifetime achievement award last year so he's our horse in this race and we are really pulling for him."

While hundreds celebrated the years' best movies and films in Ashland, this 11th Annual Oscar Gala is all about helping local kids.

Richard Herskowitz says, "We bring school groups to the Ashland Street Cinema for certain movies during the festival and there's a number of these programs that are getting supported by this audience tonight.

Orangizers expect to raise between $5,000-$10,000 to go to AIFF Learn programs.
