Lynn Shelton's 'Your Sister's Sister' IFC Films

The 11th Annual Ashland Independent Film Festival in Ashland, Oregan will host 94 films from around the world from April 12th to the 16th. This year, several women directors will attend the festival, including special guests Julie Taymor ("Across the Universe"), the first woman to win the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical ("The Lion King"), and Ondi Timoner ("We Live in Public"), two-time Sundance Grand Jury prize-winner.
 
Also attending are Rory Kennedy, who returns to AIFF with her latest documentary, Sundance's HBO doc "Ethel," a personal portrait of her mother, Ethel Kennedy. Lynn Shelton presents her Sundance film "Your Sister’s Sister," a romantic comedy starring Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass. And yes, there will be films directed by men, including Paul Saltzman's latest, "Return to Mississippi (Work in Progress)."

The festival’s full schedule, film descriptions and program are available now here. Tickets go on sale to members beginning March 20 and to the general public on March 25.
