School Group Tickets

AIFF offers blocks of tickets to school groups for the Ashland Street Cinema, where we curate school group programs just for your students to experience as part of the regular school day. Our staff will be happy to work with you on ticketing arrangements. All school group tickets (students & adult chaperones) will be sold at the student ticket price. Theaters will be filled on a first-come first-served basis.

All ticketing inquiries can be sent to Sean Sullivan (541) 488-3823 or


Teen Press

Teen Press is a movement connecting students, educators, and local communities and helps them discover and share their stories. Born out of the bond between humans and storytelling, Teen Press is devoted to helping teenage students discover and sustain excitement about who they are and why they exist. Emboldened by camera & microphone, students use video journalism - and live! – person to person relationships to uncover stories all around them. Through that process, students discover the everlasting power and importance of their own story. This year teens from Crater and Ashland High School participated in the AIFF Teen Press.
