50th Anniversary Ann Arbor Film Festival 16mm Package

The Ann Arbor Film Festival is America’s longest-running festival focused on independent and experimental work, and this vital institution celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012. The AAFF also pioneered the traveling film festival tour, and this year’s 16mm touring package is as strong as ever, featuring work by established filmmakers like Robert Todd, Jodie Mack, and Jennifer Reeves, as well as emerging artists like Fern Silva and Jonathan Schwartz. A wide variety of styles, forms, and techniques are on display here, from found footage to optical printing to hand processing to pinhole cameras.
