Films long and short and funny and sad will fill screens and eyeballs when the Ashland Independent Film Festival returns to the city's two movie theaters this week (April 6-10). 

And it's not just about the movies, but the movie makers, too... like James Ivory (as in Merchant Ivory Productions), who is a Klamath Falls native. 

What does it take to pull together all the films and all the filmmakers for the five-day blitz?  Program Director Richard Herskowitz, who is now also AIFF's Executive Director, takes a few moments out of a busy week to tell us.
