ASHLAND, Ore. – The Ashland Independent Film Festival was recently awarded grants from the Oregon Cultural Trust and the Oregon Arts Commission.

“We are very grateful for the Oregon Cultural Trust grant,” said AIFF board chair Maylee Oddo, “and we appreciate the honor of being a recipient. How can you not love them, honestly? They’re just wonderful, and they support so many nonprofits in this area.”

The $7,921 grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust will support the film festival’s regional filmmaking programs for adults and student filmmakers.

The Oregon Arts Commission awarded AIFF $5,391 for general operating support of the annual festival.

The festival receives over 1,300 films for review each year and selects 100+ documentary, narrative, animated and short films to screen in seven theatres to audiences from throughout Oregon and beyond.

MovieMaker Magazine has designated AIFF as “One of 50 Film Festivals Worth the Fee” and “One of 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World.”
