Ashland Independent Film Festival presents approximately 100 new independent films, including 35 feature films and a dozen shorts programs, accompanied by Q&A’s with filmmakers, virtual parties, mixers, and panels.

11:00am - 4:30pm: Jeremy Rourke Live Performance (FREE)
Jeremy Rourke creates videos and multi-media performances rooted in experimental animation and original music. A self-taught animator eschewing digital effects for hands-on techniques, his animation table is full of paper ephemera, photo-puppets, clay, paint, pencils, lights, and flora.

His work fuses interviews, field recordings, vintage photography, time-lapse video, text, joy, lyrics, and cut paper into works that explore the details of our shared and personal histories.

Location: AIFF Film Center

8:30pm: Weed and Wine
Join us at ScienceWorks in Ashland for this unique live & outdoor film screening event.

Continents apart from one another, two farming families aim to reinvent themselves on their land. One family-a strong-willed French matriarch and the son she raised among her vines-tends a centuries-old, biodynamic vineyard in the South­ern Rhône. Across the ocean in Humboldt, California, another family-a brash father and his more reserved son-carefully manage a state-recognized, organic cannabis farm. The feature documen­tary Weed & Wine interweaves their stories, urging compar­isons and teasing out contradictions between France’s revered winemaking traditions and the artisan culture emerging along­side the legal cannabis industry.

ScienceWorks Site Opens to the Public at 7:00pm
Film to begin at 8:30pm

Location: SciWorks
