Films worth freezing for

Todd is a hyper-articulate, obsessive-compulsive gay man in Los Angeles whose multiple insecurities around dating and sex lead him to a baffling conclusion: He might not be gay at all. Despite all evidence to the contrary, and against the advice of his closest friends, Todd is determined to give dating women a try. Enter Rory, an aspiring actress hitting a personal and professional wall. Unable to land either a role or a decent human connection. A latter-day Tracy and Hepburn, the two hit it off and start dating — but how long can a relationship last that's all stimulating talk and no actual touch?

AIFF’s mission is to develop, promote and sustain a film festival that supports new media and independent film making in Alaska and around the world while enriching cultural and entertainment opportunities for Alaskans. Our nonprofit organization continues to play a part in expanding film screening and production opportunities throughout the state.

By bringing filmmakers from all parts of the country and world to Alaska, we want artists to connect with people they might not otherwise meet, and engage audiences in workshops, screenings, and plenty of celebratory parties.
