AIFF 2010: The Ashland Experience

user
People love Ashland. Ashland, Oregon appears, at first glance, to be a quintessential small American town.  It has a population of about twenty thousand and a compact, walkable downtown where the closest thing to a skyscraper is the Ashland Springs Hotel - once the tallest building between, depending on who you ask, either Sacramento and Eugene or San Francisco and Portland - which towers over the Main Street “skyline” but never reaches double-digit storeys. Within a few blocks from...

Gilles Jacob the tireless

By ALI NADERZAD - April 12, 2010 (Paris) As dean of the Cannes Festival Gilles Jacob would be expected to handle stars like we handle a road well traveled.
