ASHLAND, Ore. — Tomorrow marks the opening of the 17th annual Ashland Independent Film Festival. Over 100 independent films from a variety of filmmakers will grace the screens of 7 venues throughout Ashland, April 12 through 16.
The films and their themes vary widely—from "I Am Maris," a documentary from Medford native Laura VanZee Taylor about a young girl on a spiritual journey from anxiety to enlightment, to "The Day That," a loosely autobiographical film by Drian Tocker about the day his father suddenly died, to "One October," a film from Rachel Shuman and Edward Norton that blends the exuberance of a historic election and the looming fear of an economic crisis.
Below you'll find all the essential information about the festival, where to go and what to do:
Historic Ashland Armory

Ashland Springs Hotel
SOU Music Recital Hall
