Edge Hill hosts the 49th Annual Ann Arbor Film Festival Tour screening on Wednesday 1st February at 7.30pm in the Studio Theatre.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary in March 2012, Ann Arbor is America's longest-running independent film festival. It has pioneered the concept of the travelling film festival tour, bringing films to venues that represent the only means for new and challenging filmmakers to have their work seen by appreciative audiences.
Featuring filmmakers from England, USA, Japan, South Korea, India and Denmark, this selection of eight films from 2011's festival include six prizewinners and embrace the genres of documentary, short narrative feature and experimental video. From Jessica Sarah Rinland's Nulepsy, a film exploring an old man's compulsion to remove all his clothing, to Natasha Mendonca's Jan Villa, a moving documentary of the aftermath of the monsoon flooding of Mumbay in 2005 and the Best of Festival winner this year, the short films collected here demonstrate Ann Arbor's promotion of young and talented filmmakers from across the world. Come along and see some of the filmmakers who will shape the future!
