My favorite of the 2016 film festival so far are the Short Stories. There are actually tickets still remaining to see these on Sunday morning.

The short films are all good or better, but the final one “Thunder Road” by Jim Cummings is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. I’ve never simultaneously been so sad and laughing hysterically before.

I said a final goodbye to my dying mother just days before the 2013 Ashland Independent Film Festival. She died within days of the festival ending. My father was dying during the 2014 AIFF. So I tend to get a little extra emotional during AIFF. “Thunder Road”, “Semele”, “Mother’s Day”, and “1985” (a short before “Five Nights in Maine”) all got me really good.
