Festival Selections

We are proud to announce the 2015 AIFF Official Selections. Our programmers chose the films that represent the best of international and independent cinema. The organizers of the AIFF appreciate every one of you that submitted a film for our consideration. Thanks for all of your hard work and your support of the AIFF and passion for the art of independent film.

Official selections include all films selected to be screened during the festival. The films in competition represent the official selections chosen by our pre screening committee to go through the award jury process. About 20 percent of our official selections are entered into competition.

In 2011 the Alaska State Legislature awarded a grant to the Iditarod Area School District to develop theme-based lessons and document the implementation of these lessons on video. The overall themes represented in these student videos are local history and community.


AIFFs mission is to develop, promote and sustain a film festival that supports new media and independent film making in Alaska and around the world while enriching cultural and entertainment opportunities for Alaskans. Our nonprofit organization continues to play a part in expanding film screening and production opportunities throughout the state.

As North America's northernmost independent film festival, AIFF now enters its 10th event of bringing movie-goers out of the cold and into the illuminating worlds of filmmakers from around the globe. By bringing filmmakers from all parts of the country and world to Alaska, we want artists to connect with people they might not otherwise meet, and engage audiences in workshops, screenings, and plenty of celebratory parties.
