By becoming an AAFF member, not only are you joining a community of experimental film lovers, you are also supporting the longest-running avant-garde film festival in North America as well as gaining exclusive perks.
But don’t just take our word for it. We asked Greg Powell, a longtime AAFF member, about why he chooses to support the festival. “I became a member of AAFF to support a world renown, sparkling beacon of culture and creativity here in Ann Arbor,” said Powell. “Tangible benefits such as special screenings and member discounts are nice perks, but what motivates me most to be a member of AAFF is knowing I am supporting a decades-old, cutting edge arts organization that is part of the cultural heritage of Ann Arbor.”
After talking to a few more AAFF members, we have compiled a list of the top four reasons to become a member.
1. BE A PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER
Join us in building a strong and sustainable future for the Ann Arbor Film Festival. Now more than ever, we believe the arts are crucial and your membership helps us continue to be a platform for the best film art. Plus, you get to support something that you love.
2. DISCOUNTS, DISCOUNTS, DISCOUNTS
Becoming a member of the Ann Arbor Film Festival unlocks the ability to receive a 15% discount on tickets, passes, and merchandise. Why wouldn’t you want these exclusive deals? Visit our online shop here.
You will get exclusive invitations to private, members-only screenings and events. These events are your chance to discuss experimental film with folks who love it as much as you do! For the first year ever, members are now invited to participate in our Screening Salons. These salons are typically reserved for screeners only and are where great conversations take place about films that have not yet been accepted into the festival. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at how the festival comes
alive each year.
4. GET A SNEAK PEAK OF THE 59TH AAFF
AAFF members are guaranteed priority mailing of the festival program calendar straight to your home. Members with the level 16mm and up are invited to our annual Sneak Preview, a viewing of films from the upcoming festival. We can’t WAIT for you to see what we have in store for you this year.
