Opening Night Gala - Sugar Mountain
Opening the Anchorage International Film Festival's ten days of films and fun, we're bringing to Anchorage the premiere of the long-awaited, "Sugar Mountain"!

Join us at the BearTooth TheatrePub for Opening Night to welcome director and cast back to Alaska and celebrate movie-making in the 49th State! 

Filmed in Seward and around the Kenai Peninsula, this drama tells the story of two brothers, down on their luck, who fake a disappearance in the Alaskan wilderness so they'll have a great survival story to sell, but the hoax turns out to be more real than they planned.

Directed by Richard Gray
Starring: Cary Elwes, Jason Momoa, Drew Roy, Haley Webb, Shane Coffey
Music written and performed by Alaskan band, Blackwater Railroad Company.

Watch the Sugar Mountain Trailer!

Doors open at 6, program to begin at 7. $25 entry, tickets available in Late-November. Opening Night Ticket included with Festival Pass (must be picked up at BearTooth Box Office)

Film will begin at 7:30, with Q & A from visiting Director and Cast afterward, followed by a good ol' party with DJ's swingin', champagne pouring and custom-made desserts to delight your palate!
