AAFF Announces Special Programs

The 48th annual Ann Arbor Film Festival is just a few weeks away, making this a perfect time to prime yourself for the experimental and avant-garde films awaiting you from March 23-28 at the Festival. A great way to search the AADL catalog for groundbreaking explorations on DVD is to enter the keywords "experimental films" on the Catalog page.

The AAFF recently announced several special programs for this year, including Naomi Uman's personal documentaries, "Ukranian Time Machine," and Daniel Barrow's combination of overhead lamp projection with video and music, "Every Time I See Your Picture I Cry," about a garbage man who wants to create a detailed phone book with the personal history of each member of his community.

For the less daring fans of short film, the Michigan Theater is showing the Oscar Nominated Short Films this Friday. If you can't make this screening, check out the AADL's collection of short film Oscar hopefuls from the last few years.


"The website for the 48th AAFF, including the full program and advance ticket ordering, will be launched in early March - stay tuned!"

I can't wait!! I had so much fun visiting the film fest multiple days last year, there were some stellar films!

Thanks for the additional details, manz! I'm looking forward to hearing Kenneth Anger and seeing his legendary work, and these newly added programs look like they're going to be a great experience.

The Ann Arbor Film Festival page on Arborwiki has some more information about this year's program as well as previous years programs and a history of the event. Please edit it if you have more to add! Ed
