Ann Arbor Film Festival (Part 2)
The Ann Arbor Film Festival is the longest-running independent and experimental film festival in North America, established in 1963. Internationally recognized as a premiere forum for independent filmmakers and artists, each year's festival engages audiences with remarkable cinematic experiences. The AAFF is a pioneer of the traveling film festival tour and each year presents short films programs at more than 30 theaters, universities, museums and art house cinemas throughout the world.
This program features new avant-garde and experimental films from established and emerging North American makers. Several works creatively document landscapes, including Sleeping Bear, Scene 32 and Laura Kraning's portrait of Hollywood's last drive-in theater, Vineland. Daichi Saito's Trees of Syntax, Leaves of Axis, won the AAFF "Best of Festival" award with gorgeously textured hand-processed 35mm and a visceral soundtrack. Handcrafted animation is masterfully represented by several artists, including a puzzle piece treatise by Martha Colburn and a meditation on the effects of cancer by Karen Aqua. Continuing his exploration into machinima and multiplayer game sampling, Phil Solomon presents his newest work Still Raining, Still Dreaming.
