Winter film fests: Let’s go to the movies
- Dec. 6-15, Anchorage International Film Festival
- Jan. 17-18, Indigenous World Film Festival
The Anchorage Film Fest is 12 years old this year and happily anchored at eight venues around town, including Bear Tooth Theatrepub and Alaska Experience Theater, but also the Anchorage Museum and Mad Myrna’s among others. Tickets range from $8 a show to $100 for an all-films pass. The fest uses the “festivalgenius” app for on-the-go convenience.
This is year 10 for the Indigenous World Film Festival hosted at the Alaska Native Heritage Center. This two-day, Friday-Saturday fest is free and includes opportunities to meet guest film directors.
We’ll give you highlights and don’t miss notes, based on interviews with the program directors of each festival. Your winter dance card will be full!
