A NOTE TO FILM MAKERS
As you know, following the screenings in Ann Arbor, additional screenings of the festival films take place at leading institutions and theatres throughâ¢out the country.
The festival program will tell you whether or not your film was screened in Ann Arbor, while the following will tell you if your work has been sent
TITLE: ________________ Yes . No
TITLE..Â·_________________ Yes . No
TITLEÂ·~.________________ Yes .No
Films not accepted for screening in Ann Arbor and films not sent on tour will be returned post-paid and insured on March 11, 1968.
Although the ANN ARBOR FILM FESTIVAL has never made editorial comments about films or film makers, I personally would like to thank the wonderful film makers of California for their support. Not often the subject of an endorsement, these artists to me are the main reason why there is an independent cinema of any substance and quality today. (G. M.
