1st Feb 2012 - 7:30pm

Studio Theatre

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!
