Fine Arts | Ann Arbor Film Festival

The Fine Arts division has partnered with the Ann Arbor Film Festival (AAFF) to provide limited online access to the programming from their 57th festival (2019). Three film programs will be available throughout the first week of quarantine, September 3–10, 2020.

Program Details and Film Descriptions

About the Festival

Established in 1963, the Ann Arbor Film Festival is the oldest avant garde and experimental film festival in North America. The six-day festival presents 40 programs with more than 200 artist films from over 20 countries of all lengths and genres, including experimental, animation, documentary, narrative, hybrid and performance-based works. The 58th Festival will take place March 24–29, 2020 at the historic Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, MI. 

Touring Program

The Ann Arbor Film Festival is a pioneer of the traveling film festival concept, having launched an annual tour program in 1964. The AAFF selects films from the past year’s festival to screen in art house theaters, museums, universities, cinematheques, and media art centers. All filmmakers participating on the tour are paid to screen their work, providing direct support to these independent artists. The Almost All Ages program is appropriate for people six years and older, in terms of both the content included and the attention span required. It’s also more easily accessible to people of all ages who may be new to experimental film.
