Can you help us GiveFilm?

GiveFilm is our ticket donation program in support of the mission of AIFF:

"Celebrate the diversity of human experience through the art of independent film by enriching, educating and inspiring all audiences."
Through GiveFilm, AIFF volunteers, community members, local business and grantors make a tax-deductible donation to AIFF. For every $13.00 donated,  we will issue a ticket good for any festival film to a resident of Southern Oregon or Northern California who otherwise would be unable to attend the film festival. Ticket vouchers are distributed through AIFF as well as the service agencies. During AIFF2016 we were able to distribute nearly 300 tickets through this program!

If you know of an agency or organization who would benefit from receiving GiveFilm tickets, please send an email to
Please support GiveFilm through your individual donation. Make your donation today by putting GiveFilm in the memo line of your check, and mail to:
Ashland Independent Film Festival
PO Box 218
Ashland, OR  97520

You can also GiveFilm with a credit card by clicking on the Donate button below.
