Anchorage International Film Festival Announces Selections for 15th Annual Celebration of Film in Alaska
For the 15th consecutive year, the Anchorage International Film Festival is pleased to announce a lineup of independent films from around the world to screen December 4-13, 2015. The BearTooth Theatrepub, Alaska Experience Theater, Anchorage Museum and the Snow Goose Performing Arts Theatre will play host to the ten-day festival.
With a film submission increase of about 40 percent over last year, the 2015 program highlights some of the best films from around the world, accepting (100+) films from (12+) countries. Cinema-goers will screen films in categories including Features, Documentaries, Animation, Shorts, and Made in Alaska, as well as the Audience Choice award for films screened at the BearTooth.
The festival will begin with the Opening Night screening of “Eadweard,” at the BearTooth Theatrepub, 8 PM on Friday, Dec. 4.
Eadweard is the story of a world-famous, turn-of-the-century photographer, Eadweard Muybridge, later to be known as the “Godfather of Cinema.” This psychological thriller follows Muybridge from his work in Alaska shortly after its purchase from Russia. The story portrays an unconventional photographer as he seeks to capture life in “motion,” developing the first body of stop-motion photography–over 100,000 images depicting animals and humans in motion, and nude and deformed subjects. Director Kyle Rideout will be in attendance for the Opening Night screening.
