The Ann Arbor Film Festival is pleased to announce the release of our annual touring programs. Each year, the Ann Arbor Film Festival presents a selection of films throughout the world by going on tour, sending films to galleries, art house theaters, universities, and other venues. The tour is divided into two distinct programs of award-winning short films that were shown at the 59th AAFF, Awards 1 and Awards 2.
To view the full list of films included in each category please visit our website here.
The AAFF will supply institutions that book a tour program with sufficient promotional materials. This will include high-quality still images, a customized PDF for printing posters/flyers, a customized PDF program summary, festival graphics, and copy.
The Ann Arbor Film Festival is a pioneer of the traveling film festival tour which launched in 1964 with film screenings in Paris, Los Angeles, and Berkeley. Since that time, the AAFF tour has presented hundreds of influential works by film artists including Barbara Hammer, Gus Van Sant, Sally Cruikshank, Don Hertzfeldt, Bill Brown, Ross McLaren, Paul Winkler, James Duesing, Martha Colburn, and Jay Rosenblatt.
The tour provides filmmakers the unique opportunity of having their work screened in front of audiences for whom, in many places, the tour venue is their only access to this form of film art. Each filmmaker participating in the AAFF tour is also paid for each “tour stop”, thereby helping to directly support their filmmaking.
