Easily one of the best Deals we’ve offered. These are new, in-box docking speaker systems, from leading brand names like Logitech, Altec Lansing, Boston Acoustics, and Griffin. So why so cheap? They all use the older, 30-pin type Apple docking connector. That doesn’t mean they’re unusable. Far from it: You can use a standard audio cable to plug the headphone output of your device into the AUX jack on these speakers. Or you can pick up Apple’s 30-pin to Lightning Adapter for about 30 bucks. Enjoy rich, luxurious, room-filling sound from top-name systems listing at up to $300, each one just $29.99!

That’s just cray.

Connecting Point proudly supports 15th Ashland Independent Film Festival (AIFF) | Apr. 7-11, 2016

2016 Ashland Independent Film Festival 640x826

“The Ashland Independent Film Festival is one of those regional gems that gives me faith and hope for the future of independent cinema. Great town, great people, great atmosphere, great movies, great everything!”
Michael Tully, Director, PING PONG SUMMER

The Ashland Independent Film Festival is five days of the highest-quality independent film, held in historic Ashland, Oregon. The Washington Post called it “a dream you’ll never want to leave.” Every Spring, Southern Oregon buzzes with the excitement of the AIFF. Over 7000 film lovers gather at the historic art-deco Varsity Theatre, the Historic Ashland Armory, and other venues to watch over 90 documentary, feature, and short films over five days.

Filmmakers from around the world engage with the audience after each screening and at festival events such as Opening Night Bash, the AfterLounge, and Awards Celebration, which include local wine, beer, and gourmet food. Special guests have included Ty Burrell, Albert Maysles, Barbara Kopple, Helen Hunt, and Bruce Campbell. The Ashland Independent Film Festival: Celebrating the diversity of human experience through the art of independent film—enriching, educating and inspiring audiences of all ages.

The Oregonian newspaper’s Shawn Levy claims AIFF “offers movie lovers that same sense of being in a magical place…. Southern Oregon doesn’t have anything else like it – nor, in fact, do most places on Earth.”

Connecting Point returns for its fourth year as a Community Sponsor, providing an iMac computer and a wireless printer for the festival’s Hospitality Suite, where visiting filmmakers and other creatives can both work and relax. We urge you to support the thriving arts community in our area. Visit the AIFF website to see the rich variety of films being presented at this year’s festival. Better still, pick up some tickets and celebrate independent cinema with like-minded folks in Ashland! It all kicks off today and runs through Monday.
