For these men, it”s not just a job – it”s a calling. And they”ll stop at nothing to perpetuate the myth and magic of Santa Claus. Young or old, naughty or nice, this documentary will make you believe all over again.

The 22nd Annual Anchorage International Film Festival will take place December 2-11, 2022. We are currently planning an in-person event, with all films available to watch at our various venues.
