ASHLAND, Ore. – The Ashland Independent Film Festival (AIFF) will now be May 22nd through June 14th, instead of previously scheduled dates in April, it will also be completely virtual.
“You’ll be able to purchase a subscription for three weeks of films,” said Richard Herkowitz, the Artistic and Executive Director for AIFF.
Subscriptions go on sale starting April 30th.
“You’ll have access to individual feature films, all the short films will be available with a subscription, some of the feature films will have additional charges but the prices are very reasonable,” said Herkowitz.
Even though AIFF was forced to go virtual because of coronavirus, Herkowitz says this could be a permanent addition to the festival in years to come.
“The experience has been so illuminating. We realize now, maybe in the future we can always have an online supplement,” said Herkowitz.
For the 2020 Ashland Independent Film Festival, organizers are working to make it as close to normal as possible.
We’re trying to create events, create the feeling of the festival so we don’t want to just have film showings. We’re going to have introductions and Q&A’s with the filmmakers after every film and, in addition to that we’re planning to throw parties online,” said Herkowitz.
The extra online events are only for members, Memberships are available to purchase.
