Fly Fishing Film Festival Returns this Fall

Contributed by Ben Rowell

The International Fly Fishing Film Festival™ (IF4™) returns to the Mat-Su Valley this fall for a fifth year. IF4™ consists of short and feature length films produced by professional filmmakers from all corners of the globe, showcasing the passion, lifestyle and culture of fly fishing.

This year’s festival features nine films, including “ANIAK”, filmed on the 95-mile tributary of Alaska’s Kuskokwim River, by acclaimed film maker Todd Moen. The films run for 1 hour and 36 minutes, followed by gear giveaways from national and local sponsors.

“This event is all about bringing together the Mat-Su angling community for a couple hours of fun”, says host Ben Rowell of Highway 3 Angler LLC. “The festival will entertain all ages and inspire anglers to get out more on their local waters or travel to exotic destinations.”

IF4™ is sponsored locally by 3 Rivers Fly and Tackle, Cache Camper Manufacturing, Inc., FisheWear, and Trout Unlimited Southcentral Alaska Chapter.

The 2019 films screen on Friday, September 13 at 7:30pm at The Glenn Massay Theater on Mat-Su College campus in Palmer.

Tickets are available in advance for $15 at 3 Rivers Fly and Tackle and and at the door for $18.
