Ashland Independent Film Festival

April 4 - 8, 2013 — Ashland, Oregon

Your film priorities

The goal of this site is to help you see the films you really want to see - it's a three step process: you start by prioritizing the festival's films, then you tell me which screenings you can see, then I build a schedule that (hopefully!) fits your priorities. If it's your first visit, go ahead and check out the other two tabs above, then come back to this first one - I'll wait!

So, to get started, you'll indicate your preference for each film by clicking one of the little circles next to each film below. The highest priority means "I *really* want to see this!," and the lowest means "I don't want to see this; never schedule it for me;" if you've made a choice and want to remove it for some reason, clicking the "" will forget you ever made a choice.

If there's a film you've seen already, you can note what you thought of it here by entering a rating from one to five stars; you can also come back and enter ratings later. (I'll be sharing these ratings — see the Help page for details.)
