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.
