As The Anchorage International Film Festival embarks on its 18th season, we want to thank our incredible community for all of the support we have received over the years. Anchorage, and Alaska as a whole, is a melting pot of culture and talent that is unrivaled.

Before I became involved with AIFF, I had very little idea how this festival impacted so many lives. From our local student filmmakers, to our seasoned professionals and visiting filmmakers, AIFF has become a great resource to share ideas, knowledge and network with the creative community. AIFF has always been and will continue to be an advocate for our independent film community, which has grown significantly over the past several years.

It is no secret that Alaska is a magical destination, and because of that, it brings people together in unexpected ways. In the dead of winter, AIFF offers a bright light for 10 days every season. During our festival, we are fortunate enough to welcome several filmmakers from all over the world, creating lasting memories and friendships.

As the film industry changes, it is becoming more important than ever that we support independent film, and the surrounding community. The Anchorage International Film Festival is looking forward to sharing the work of so many talented storytellers this season and for years to come.  

Thank you very much for your support and patronage. Gather up your friends and families and join us for 10 days of amazing stories from around the globe while we celebrate Films Worth Freezing For.

Bjarn Hates The Camera
Directed By: Weronika Nitsch
Country of Origin: Norway

“Bjarne Hates the Camera” is the story of a foreign filmmaker who invades the life of her neighbour Bjarne. Who is he? She asks him about life and death, hopes and dreams. He asks if she’s going to stop anytime soon. But when the woman behind the camera refuses to stop, a relationship rarely caught on film is born - full of absurdities, warmth and humour. And mostly just a bunch of unanswered questions. 

The Weight of Success
Directed By: M. Douglas Silverstein
Country of Origin: USA
The brutal truth about one controversial woman who built a self-help book empire while trying to prove to her family, and the world, that life coaches aren't a scam.
