december 2-11, 2005
Anchorage International Film Festival
December in Anchorage is dark. Its cold. We're aching for a reason to get together and have a good time. Over 500 filmmakers from 40 countries heeded our call for indoor diversion. Our selection committee has distilled these down to just over 165 gems. For ten days we will present more films than you can possibly watch. Many of these films you'll never get to see again. Look out Anchorage, the world is focusing on you. Its time to get crazy about film.

Press Room
Thanks!

It takes a city to have a film festival and we could not have done it without the army of volunteers that make this little show so big. A humongous hat's off to you all!

Kudos as well to this year's cast and crew and our generous sponsors. Thanks for supporting the festival.

We'll be Back!

Check out the website later in 2006 for information about next year's festival.
