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.
