Ashland Welcomes Matt Ross Home

On Tuesday, August 23  we welcomed home writer, director, and actor Matt Ross for a sold-out special benefit screening of his film “Captain Fantastic.” We were honored to co-host the film and provide a moderated Q&A with Mr. Ross and Richard Herskowitz, AIFF Director of Programming. Following the Q&A, AIFF hosted a “Meet the Director” fundraising reception at Scarpetta Restaurant.

Matt Ross shared, “It was a lovely experience, so many great and insightful questions from a clearly appreciative and highly intelligent audience. I’ve done many Q&A’s at this point, as you can imagine, but that ranks among the best. I’m so happy that we were able to show the film in Ashland this way. And the generosity shown by you and your staff was exemplary.”

It was our pleasure to have you Matt!
