The AIFF rolls out the red carpet to celebrate the Academy Awards! Gather with other film lovers to watch the show live and find out this year's winners. The broadcast will be projected on two large screens, so every seat in the house has a great view and you won't miss a word!

The evening will include a variety of donation opportunities. This is a fundraising event for the AIFF so bring cash, your checkbook or credit card to help support our non-profit.

Become a Member of AIFF and receive early ticketing ordering privileges, ticket discounts, early theatre entry and more.

Filmmaker Travel is an opportunity for you to help reduce the expense for filmmakers who travel to Ashland for the festival. Filmmakers add a personal insight into their art through Q&A's, TalkBACK panel discussions, and interactions with the community.
Donate to the nonprofit AIFF to support our year-round work and help us continue to produce our 5 day festival. 

This event has sold out in the past, so whether you gather friends to reserve your own table of 8, or you purchase an individual ticket for a seat at a table with other film fans, make your plans to celebrate in style on Hollywood’s biggest night of the year!
