The Alameda International Film Festival (AIFF) was launched in 2016 by the executive producers of The Long Day Short Film Festival, which began in Alameda in 2008 and ran for 7 years.

The goal of AIFF is quite the same as its forebear: to bring new and innovative film to audiences in Alameda. However, AIFF can achieve much more than the previous festival ever could. Multiple categories, including long-form shorts and feature films, beget multiple programs at multiple venues on multiple days. The film scene in Alameda is growing and growing with the AIFF as the driver.

AIFF is a project of Anchor, a new Alameda arts organization.
