WHAT IS THE TOUR?

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.
