Thank you to MovieMaker Magazine for naming the Anchorage International Film Festival one of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World for 2023! We are beyond excited and can’t wait to welcome the world to Anchorage again this winter. The 23rd edition of AIFF will take place December 1-9, 2023.
Submissions for the 2024 Anchorage International Film Festival will open on or around March 1, 2024.
The Anchorage International Film Festival takes place on the traditional homeland of the Eklutna Dena’ina. Anchorage is home to the K’enaht’ana, the Indigenous people of Nuti (Knik Arm), who today are members of the Eklutna (Eydlughet) and Knik (K’enakatnu) tribes. The K’enaht’ana have lived on the lands and waters here for thousands of years, long before Anchorage was “founded” and developed by visitors from elsewhere.
We are grateful to live, gather and celebrate in this beautiful land, and we are committed to honor the history and traditions of the Indigenous people of Alaska.
