DREAMLAND By Mirai Mizue
With Memorial Day approaching, Ann Arbor is gearing up for the true marker of summer in the city, Summerfest. In case you needed any extra push or excuse to go out and enjoy the monthlong festival, there will be three opportunities to catch short films from the 57th AAFF throughout June and July. Each short experimental AAFF film will precede the main feature film showing at 10:00 p.m. on Thursday nights during Summerfest. Films are screened at Summerfest's Top of the Park venue (915 East Washington Street).

Clean Slate (2018) by David Opdyke on Thursday, July 4
