AADL Talks To: Donald Harrison about the 50th Ann Arbor Film Festival
For half a century now, the end of March has meant one thing to Ann Arbor: the Ann Arbor Film Festival. This year's 50th festival will be both a celebration of that half-century history and the opportunity to see the latest in experimental and independent cinema that AAFF has always been. In this podcast, AAFF Executive Director Donald Harrison talks with us about the process of planning the 50th, deciding what films to highlight from the festival's history and what artists to bring back. We also talk about the new work on offer this year and some of the events around town that Ann Arborites can look forward to. The 50th Ann Arbor Film Festival runs from March 27 - April 1, 2012.
