A First Friday to kick off winter, the Anchorage International Film Festival is stirring things up with its Opening Night. You're in for a treat!

As the film industry is reinventing itself, we too are changing things up and making some unconventional plans for Opening Night! Short films are among our favorite programs, and they, too, deserve their time in the spotlight!

Thus, we bring you a short film party to kick off the 17th Annual Anchorage International Film Festival!

Blackwater Railroad Company, one of Alaska's favorite bands, is making AIFF opening night their homecoming show after touring in the Lower 48. This band is excited to announce a documentary project rolling out in 2018, and you'll hear their original music as soundtrack to the feature film, Broken Ghost.

A festive photo booth, champagne and desserts, great live music, and many chances to talk with visiting filmmakers and guests will be part of an evening to remember!

7 p.m. Showtime (Door open at 6 p.m.)
