Ann Arbor Spark

59th Ann Arbor Film Festival

from Tuesday, March 23 2021 at 12:00am - Sunday, March 28 2021 at 11:00pm

Founded in 1963, the Ann Arbor Film Festival is the oldest independent and experimental film festival in North America and is internationally recognized as a premier forum for film as an art form.

For the second year in a row, the festival is going virtual! An online festival will allow the AAFF community to experience the festival in the safety of their home while continuing to socially distance. All short Films in Competition screenings will take place as an online live
stream. After the initial live stream, the programs will be available for on-demand viewing until 12am midnight EDT on 3/31. Features in Competition and Special Programs will be available for on-demand viewing 3/23–3/31 unless otherwise noted. All programs are presented in Eastern Standard Time (EDT). While the majority of films will stream from an online platform, there are several in-person In The Screen! installations around Ann Arbor that are viewable from the street.

Join us as we celebrate the advancement of film and new media art and engage our communities with remarkable cinematic experiences.
