Oregon cities Ashland and Portland have (once again) been named among the Best Places to Live and Work as a Filmmaker in North America (well, yes, Montreal, Toronto and that other city across the border to our north [but not the one in Washington] are on the list too).
The Ashland Independent Film Festival will announce its 2017 film and event lineup at their Festival Preview Night on Tuesday, March 14 at 7 p.m. at the SOU Music Recital Hall in Ashland. This is the first chance to see clips from festival films, pick up the Pocket Guide, and get insider information on special guests and new events for AIFF2017. This event is FREE, and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Applications are now being accepted for the Roy W. Dean Fall Grant.

Films can be documentaries, short films, and features and must be unique and contribute to society. Deadline for submission is September 30th, 2014
Join us for an evening of poignant short films, about the myths and realities of homelessness, created by young adults transitioning from struggle to self-sufficiency. Mentored by Northwest Film Center faculty for the last three months, the youth have worked in front of and behind the camera to tell these personal stories of struggle and hope for the future. Many of the young filmmakers will be in attendance to reflect on their experience and take questions from the audience.
Make it sad. Make it funny. Make it terrifying. Make it in 40 seconds.
To celebrate the Film Center’s 40th anniversary, we invite Northwest filmmakers to enter the MAKE IT SHORT film contest. No matter what genre or format—narrative, documentary, experimental, animation, 16mm, camera phone, DSLR—we want to see it, but keep it short: 40 seconds or less.
