We hope you will be able to join our free, Live Stream of the 58th Ann Arbor Film Festival! As you might imagine, festival week provides a good portion of our annual income through ticket sales. Because we are offering our films via live stream for free, this income is lost to us. We would be grateful if you would consider making a tax-deductible contribution in the amount of what a ticket ($12) or a festival pass ($150) would cost. This will go a long way toward ensuring that the AAFF can continue to be a platform for experimental and avant-garde filmmakers and can remain the #1 film festival in North America.

Your contribution to the Ann Arbor Film Festival, large or small, makes a big difference in the Festival's ability to champion talented film artists. Thank you for being a part of our community!

The Ann Arbor Film Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization powered by a generous community of supporters. As the longest running independent and experimental film festival in North America, the AAFF serves as a critical forum for connecting filmmakers with audiences through the art form of film.

"In an age when the bottom line seems to be eroding some of the soul of cinema, the Ann Arbor Film Festival 
is unique, and truly radical, in its celebration of film as an art form. The AAFF is a cultural treasure." 

–Sam Green, director of Academy Award®-nominated The Weather Underground
