    Posted by Bruce Thompson II on Sat, Mar 7, 2015



    What is the Ann Arbor Film Festival?

    With February passing us by just as quick as January did, we want to share awesome ways to spend your fleeting time getting to know the industry more intimately. Enter the 53rd Annual Ann Arbor Film Festival! The AAFF is a six day even that showcases over 180 films in a wide variety of genres including experimental, animation, documentaries, and much more. There are many now-famous directors who exhibited early works at the AAFF including George Lucas, Gus Van Sant, and Andy Warhol. This festival is the real deal by being one of the few Academy Award-qualifying film festivals in the country.

    Where is the AAFF and how can I attend?

    The Ann Arbor Film Festival will take place March 24th-29th, 2015 at the Michigan Theater. The Michigan Theater is located at 603 East Liberty Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104. A cool feature of the AAFF is that if you want to go and don't really want to spend the money for a ticket or pass, you can elect to volunteer for the festival by helping out in the weeks leading up to the festival, during the festival, and in the post-festival wrap up. There's many ways to be able to see these new releases from amazing directors, so check out their site here and figure out which way works best for you!
