Ann Arbor Film Festival presents: 58th AAFF Music Videos in Competition

The Ann Arbor Film Festival returns for its 58th year March 24 - 29, 2020.  Thousands of influential filmmakers and artists have showcased work at the AAFF, including Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono, Gus Van Sant, Barbara Hammer, Lawrence Kasdan, Devo, and George Lucas. The longest-running avant-garde and experimental film festival in North America, it presents films of all lengths and genres, including experimental, animation, documentary, fiction, and performance-based works. The festival serves as one of a handful of Academy Award®-qualifying festivals in the United States. 
 
This year, the AAFF is featuring a Music Videos in Competition program. These contemporary music videos include beard-based lifeforms, an unexpected visitor, a journey forward, a setar player, a future so remote it looks like the past, an exorcism attempt, power dynamics and sexual abuse, a Jungian alternate universe wormhole, another dimension, mesmerizing voices, disturbing arte-facts brought to light, a blackhole, and a haunted car ride with Kim Gordon.

This program is free and open to the public and co-sponsored by the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
