In 2009 Anita van Dalen (producer) and Erik van Schaaik (writer/director) made a long trip through Alaska, thoroughly falling in love with this beautiful country. Needless to say it’s a thrill to be selected for the Anchorage International Film Festival 2016! Under The Apple Tree is a film worth freezing for! December 2 – 11, 2016.
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.
