AAFF Receives AAACF Grant to Build Media Literacy Program


The Ann Arbor Film Festival is excited to announce a grant awarded by the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation to start a media literacy education program in Washtenaw County public high schools.

The program will be designed and conducted by artist and educator Jacqueline Wood. As a graduate of the University of Michigan Film and Video Studies program in 2005, Jacqueline was a key volunteer for the AAFF for several years. She received her M.F.A. in film and video from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2009. Upon returning to Ann Arbor, Jacqueline once again became an active volunteer for the AAFF and a participating installation artist (2010 & 2011).

The AAFF media literacy program seeks to engage area high school students with their critical viewing skills, expand their exposure to non-commercial media, and build an appreciation for the arts. To read the full announcement.
