Anchorage International Film Festival Announces Official 2011 Selections

We enthusiastically announce the 2011 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. Unfortunately we just didn't have enough room for all of the excellent submissions that we received this year. Thanks for all of your hard work and your support of the AIFF and passion for the art of independent film. Festival Selections Film categories include feature narratives, documentaries, short films, super shorts, animation, family and youth media, and Snowdance, a showcase of films by Alaskans or about Alaska. Festival entries are open to all films regardless of origin, content and genre.

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