On the Dial | Ann Arbor Film Festival



Ann Arbor Film Festival | Radio Waves

The 55th Annual Ann Arbor Film Festival kicks off tomorrow. 55 years is a long time to be running a film festival, let alone anything. Check out the history of the prestigious fest in their own words:

The Ann Arbor Film Festival is the oldest avant-garde and experimental film festival in North America, founded by George Manupelli in 1963. Internationally recognized as a premiere forum for independent filmmakers and artists, each year's festival engages audiences with remarkable cinematic experiences. The six-day festival presents 40 programs with more than 180 films from over 20 countries of all lengths and genres, including experimental, animation, documentary, fiction, and performance-based works.

The Ann Arbor Film Festival receives more than 3,000 submissions annually from more than 65 countries and serves as one of a handful of Academy Award®-qualifying festivals in the United States

The festival’s mission is to support bold, visionary filmmakers, promote the art of film & new media, and provide communities with remarkable cinematic experiences. We here at Two Dollar Radio can vibe with that.

There is even a 'Films in Competition Series: Music Video' category that includes Radio Waves alumni, Connections, for their stellar video "Weapons" directed by Columbus' own Brandon Reichard. Connections will be performing at The Flyover Fest put on by yours truly in May. More deets on that soon. In the meantime, revisit the zany video below:
