WEDNESDAY, DEC. 4 at 2pm. 

Kathleen McCoy, on Hometown Alaska, will discuss both the Anchorage International Film Festival and the Indigenous World Film Festival that will have its 10th Anniversary in Anchorage January 17-18. 

Kathleen's guests will be: 
Kathleen asked if she could add me to part of the program, so I'm scheduled to be on the Wednesday broadcast too.

  • Call 550-8433 (Anchorage) or 1-888-353-5752  (statewide) during the live broadcast (2:00 – 3:00pm Wednesday Alaska time)
  • Send e-mail to before, during or after the live broadcast (e-mails may be read on air)

I would also note that you can buy all film passes ($100) for the Anchorage International Film Festival online or at the Bear Tooth (the website says starting Thursday at Bear Tooth, but we got one Monday night already.)   Regular tickets are $8 a film, the opening night includes a party afterward and costs $30 ($15 if you have an all films pass.)  So, if you go to the opening night and see ten more films/programs/workshops, the pass is a good deal.

And tomorrow you can start buying tickets for the Friday opening night showing of Icebound, a film about the serum run to Nome that is memorialized each year in the Iditarod.  I suspect this one will sell out, so getting tickets early is a good idea.  The word premiere shows up, but it's not clear if it's an Alaska premiere or what.  It appears to have been shown on BBC4 in October.
