AIFF 2017

Part 1: What's Happening Today?  

I'm using the template I used last year and will start filling it in as I can, so
it's still a bit sketchy today (Nov 9, 2017).

Nov 23:  I've updated the Features in Competition post with a synopsis of the film from the director Girish Mohite.  I also did a Skype interview with Vanina Lappa , the director of Over the River.  I need to edit it and post it before the festival.  Working on Shorts in Competition post that will include Shorts and Super Shorts.

Latest Posts

[Nov 18 Note;  There are some changes to the lists I originally got.  What If It Works is also in competition among the features, but "The Muse" is no longer in the festival.  Also in the Documentary list, The Cage Fighter is no longer in the festival.  This is not unusual before a festival as things come up for films and directors have to make choices sometimes to pull out of one festival to stay eligible for another, or some other reasons.  I'll update the lists.]
