From the Peninsula Clarion's Elizabeth Earl:

The biggest film festival in Alaska is taking to the road for the first time, taking a few of its most popular choices to smaller communities, including the Joyce K. Carver Memorial Library in Soldotna.The Anchorage International Film Festival, hosted annually in venues across Anchorage, wants to increase its visibility year-round, both in Anchorage and elsewhere in the state, said Rebecca Pottebaum, the festival director.

“There are a lot of ways we’re pairing with organizations, not only spreading our reach or growing our influence in the state, but what’s happening is we’re providing the media at no cost to the library because our goal is to be able to expand the mission,” Pottebaum said.

The festival will bring three documentaries to Soldotna on Saturday — “Circus Without Borders,” “Right Footed” and “Stink!” — that were some of the most popular among the festival’s more than 100 films screened in December 2015.
