Jis the o{destjestiva{of experimental film in the United States, the Ann Arbor Film Festival is a showplace for inde¥pendent and experimental 16mm film. Founded in 1963 at the University of Michigan School of Art by filmmaker/artist George Manupelli, the festival is now independent of the university, and continues to cater to independent works by film artists under the direction of Festival Director Vicki Honeyman.As the premiere festival of 16mm independent & experimental film, the Ann Arbor Film Festival exists to provide a worldwide public forum for 16mm film screenings, to encourage and showcase independent & experimental film artists, to promote film as art, and to offer educational outreach. High-quality projection is also apriority. We appreciate the state-of¥the-art facilities provided by the Michigan Theater and its staff.
The festival received a total of 425 films this year. Each film was viewed by afive-member Screening Committee, who selected the films being shown in the main auditorium and the screening room during festival week. Committee members are chosen for their respect for and knowledge of independent and experimental film, as well as for their commitment to the Ann Arbor Film Festival's goals. Members of this year's Screening Committee are Ken Bawcom, Vicki Honeyman, Linda Kendall, Peter Knox, and Maureen Payne.
Because the amount of film entered exceeds the available public screening time, not every film can be programmed into the festival week screenings, though every film entered is in competition. Film entries arrived from all over the world: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy,]apan, Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Switzerland, Taiwan and all around the United States. Films are chosen for the festival program based on their overall qualities of creativity, technical expertise, and artistic expression. The length of films programmed varies from one minute to two hours. Every show has a mix of every genre submitted, including experimental, animation, documentary, personal docu¥mentary, and narrative.
The festival also includes workshops, seminars, panel discus¥sions, and additional screenings in the theater's screening room. Shows of films centered around themes are making it possible to include more entries into the program. Programs of other media are broadening the festival's inclusion of media artists (these pro¥grams are not in consideration for awards).

The Ann Arbor Film Festival is supported by kind and generous members of the Ann Arbor community who donate money, food, time, and in-kind assistance. Festival operations are funded by filmmaker entry fees, ticket sales, memberships, dollars contributed by local businesses and friends and supporters from around the US, as well as by grant and sponsorship funds. The Ann Arbor Film Festival is a non-profit organization that is organized by one full¥time, one half-time, and an enormous staff of volunteers. Aboard of directors oversees activities.
This year's festival is dedicated to our newest and youngest film festival volunteer, Film Festival Baby Abigail Kendall Knox.Welcome to the world -and thanks for not appearing until after the last entry was screened!

March 2001
On Gehaffof the AAFF Board of Directors, welcome to the 39th Ann Arbor Film Festival.
Technology and art have always been intertwined. While innovations in tech¥nology have often led to innovations in art as well as to dead ends, it is the per¥sonal vision of the artist and the artist's ability to help us examine our world that truly matters. As it stands, we are the Ann Arbor FIIM Festival and the film medium we have celebrated is 16mm film. With the current explosion in tech¥nology, from video to digital, what the future holds for film in general, and cer¥tainly for 16mm film in particular as a medium, is in question. Will 16mm go the way of the 78rpm shellac and vinyl format in music recording-will it even be available as a medium in the near future? Whatever the answers, our board feels strongly that, more than ever, it is important for our festival to remain the premiere showcase for 16mm film. We also believe we must embrace the efforts of filmmakers using other media. I would add it's no small irony that the once pejorative term "movies" rather than film may now be the more fitting and accurate description of this art. The bottom line is our festival is committed to showcasing the best in experimental and alternative film/movies.
You'll find many showcases in the Screening Room presenting other media as well as themed groupings of 16mm films and the continuation of our educa¥tion/workshop seminars. Please take advantage of all the splendid opportunities Festival Director Vicki Honeyman and Managing Assistant Director Chrisstina Hamilton have assembled. They have outdone themselves. A special thanks to Chrisstina Hamilton who is leaving the festival staff but not, I suspect, the festival family of volunteers.
This festival and especially our expanded presentations could not exist with¥out the financial help of our sponsors and granting organizations.They recognize the value of the Ann Arbor Film Festival, both locally and nationally. Please rec¥ognize their contribution to this festival. You will find them thanked elsewhere in our program. We also believe the heart and soul of all nonprofit organizations lie in its individual members. Many thanks to our growing number of members. If you are not yet one, please consider joining the family. There is membership information in the theater lobby.
Thanks again for your support of this festival and good viewing.
Steve Bergman, 1'resiaent
Ann Arbor Film Festival Board of Directors

CWith greatyCeasure Iwelcome you to this year's festival. It's been an inspir¥ing year full of growth and change. Nearly a year ago the Board of Directors made a sug¥gestion that Iwas apprehensive about acting on. Soon afterward they made a recommen¥dation that Iwas excited to act on -and now, many months later, it all comes to fruition this week of our 39th festival season!
Lookipg out for my improved well-being, the board suggested minor modifications to the festival's prescreening process. After dis¥cussing prescreening with festival directors around the country, we chose to move the entry deadline up by several months as well as to allow filmmakers to send in videotapes for prescreening. We received more entries than ever -some on tape, some on film. With a used FPS video projector and borrowed speakers, the screening committee viewed the work in comfort and style, and got done as winter started to really set in.
Iwas also gUided by the board to include "Other Media" in the festival program. We are, for the first time ever, including programs that are sure to add to the "fest" in festival. Managing Assistant Director Chrisstina Hamilton gathered together an exceptional range of work and media that are being offered in moming, afternoon and evening programs all week in the screening room.
We are most appreciative of the artists, curators and the sponsors who are participating in screening room events and are very pleased to feature programs from the Los Angeles based D.FILM Digital Film Festival and PXL This Festival, and the Video Data Bank of Chicago. The Sundance Channel is the presenting sponsor of the screening room, along with new seminar sponsors Sony Electronics, Inc. and Fletcher Chicago.
Four themed film programs are being pre¥sented in screening room Sidebar Programs Thesday-Thursday. These films are part of the competition and will be viewed by the judges in the festival office screening space. Between the Lines, the Aut Bar, LGBTA, and WRAP are sponsoring the gay and lesbian film programs entitled "In the Dark" and "Girls Out Night." The festival is pleased to
have these new community sponsors.
In the theater lobby are two installations: Gustav Deutsch (last year's winner of the Best of the Festival with Film Is) has sent his interactive CD-ROM installation, Odyssey 1bday. Local artists Leslie Raymond and Jason Stevens are sharing their curious minds all week with an installation, Portrait of a Spectator 1-J
I'm deeply indebted to a growing list of volunteer staff members who have volunteered time and energy to this year's festival. Most especially, I'm grateful to a handful of people who have spent the last 3-9 months working diligently as volunteers.
Welcome graphic artist Jocelyn Rainey who has put her touch on the festival by creating the clever graphics campaign. Kudos to Jocelyn for winning an Ann Arbor Ad Club Addy Award for the festival poster design. Jocelyn works at QLTD, a graphics firm that has donated its graphic services. And welcome to Lisa Park who took over the volunteer coordinator role, quite late in the season, but did an outstanding job. I sure hope Lisa and Jocelyn enjoyed working on the festival as much as I've enjoyed working with them -please come back next year!
Advertising and sponsorship sales reps from theBigkim, Amy Grambeau and Lori Ludington, did a terrific job raising funds for the festival. They started their sales campaign nearly a year ago and deserve our thanks.
Don't stop the presses! The newsletter must go out! Thanks to the patience of editor Barbara Brown and graphic designer Pamela Waxman for preparing the newsletter for printing ¥and to David Gatten for his lovely article.
Our web page is avital means of informing people about how to enter the festival, who enters the festival, who is awarded, where the tour is heading, how to get involved, and basically, what we're all about. Many have handled the page, starting with my brother Peter, then Stephen Iscae and Michael Roth, on to Tony Quiroz, and now Willie Northway and Tim Taylor, with help from John Moreau andJocelyn Rainey. Our website disseminates information so well that my phone rings much less often than it did ten years ago. I appre¥ciate everyone's input and time, particularly Tim and Willie for helping tum the page into something we can grow with.
Every year a new crop of interns works with me in the festival office. These students from the Program in Film & Video Studies at Uof Mare hardy, healthy, and eager -and do an excellent job of dealing with festival mania. Thanks to Mattie Matt Anderson, Alyssa Draper, Jeremy Jones, Jennifer Langel, Ryan Miller, Ugboaku Opara, Tyden Peterson, and Kelson Smith for making my job just a little bit easier!
One of my dear friends works on the festival and is my godsend: Michael Anson Woodruff -Mr. Moo thank you so much for gUiding me, bringing me food, and telling me I'm doing a great job. You do a great job, too.
Rumor has it that Chrisstina Hamilton is moving on, but I hope she's not going to get too far. She's grown quite fond of the festival, as we have of her, and we're hoping she'll continue assisting with special programs. Thanks for putting the "zest" in feztival and helping us move ahead with new ideas and new collaborations.
Thanks to our many devoted fans, members, sponsors and donors who let us know how much the festival is cherished. Your financial and in-kind support is greatly appreciated by all those who bring the festival to Ann Arbor each spring. And thank you to the Michigan Council for Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts for another year of honoring and supporting us with grant funding.
And to the filmmakers and audience members -you're our inspiration and the reason why we work hard all year! As we prepare to enter our 40th year, we continue to grow by leaps and bounds and continue to be open to film as art and new work as art -all to bring you the best Ann Arbor Film Festival ever! Let us know what you think of all the additions to the festival-and if you just love it, sign up as afestival member to let us know we've got your support!
So, get some toothpicks to hold your eyes open (or visit Starbucks for some thick coffee, or the Local Color beer/wine concessions we have in the lobby, if that's what does the trick), sit back and enjoy the show!
Vicki Honeyman, J'estiva(1Jirector

One evening in San Francisco about twelve years ago, I walked into a jazz club to hear a notoriously talented blind piano player. As I sat at a table waiting for the musician to come to the stage, I noticed a series of exquisite black and white photographs on the wall. Only later, during the intermission, did I learn that the images had been made by the piano player himself, that he had lis¥tened to descriptions of these sultry, abstract cityscapes and then clicked the camera when that moment of artistic connection had surged through his body. His ear was guiding his eye and the results were sublime.At the time, Iwas incredulous.
For me the Ann Arbor Film Festival represents acomparable tribute to the wonders of alternative sound and image making. In the same way that the piano player had awakened what might have become a dormant element of his creative makeup, we as non-traditional moviemakers find ourselves in a constant state of experimentation. The work you'll see at this festival pushes the definitions and expec¥tations of the moving image, calling to question the most funda¥mental precepts one can have about the way we see and hear in the world. Making films for the Ann Arbor Film Festival is essentially about taking these kinds of risks, allowing yourself to find pleasure in the absurdity of your own ideas. By revealing these outrageous, sublime, anarchic juxtapositions to a theater full of people, these makers hope that perhaps someone out there in the darkness will revel in a cinema moment they have never had before.
For some of the makers, this is the first theatrical screening they have ever had. For others, Ann Arbor is a continuation of many dedicated years in the field. What is special here is that there is no differentiation, only passionate appreciation and astute criticism. The conversation in the lobbyof the theater, on the sidewalk outside, in the many local cafes this week is zealous, angry, and deeplysensitive.
~Lynn' """ _ .. _""'" d",~'n""", ",.. In Baltimore but will relocate with her partner, filmmaker Mark Street, and daughters Maya and Noa to Brooklyn, NY this summer. Her filmsA Biography OfLilith, Which Way Is East: Notebooks From Vietnam, and The House ofScience all showed at the AAFF. Her newest film Investigation ofa Flame, an experimental documentary, will be completed this spring. Ms. Sachs judged at the 37th festival in 1999.
It's actually hard to believe that there is a 39-year old international film festival devoted to work which manifests such vulnerability and potential for failure. I've sat in the Michigan Theater as a maker, a member of the audience and as a judge, and I know how charged each of those roles can be.With every frame of film,we know that at some point the artist behind that image has sacrificed his or her confidence, sense of identity or financial security for the sheer pleasure of trying to convey something new to an audience of strangers.
From Maine to Alaska, from]apan to Brazil, filmmakers from around the world sit alone at their moviescopes, flatbeds, or computers composing intricate cine-meditations that theyhope will one day grace the screen of this very theater. "At long last, my movie has wings" goes the old adage, and yes indeed in this case it is true. Through rain, sleet, snow, UPS and the mail, these rare birds have flown, soared and now, at long last, landed here in Ann Arbor, Michigan.You're in for a very unusual treat. Enjoy!

On Stage

Since its early days, the Ann Arbor Film Festival
has always had live entertainment on stage before
screenings (think Pat Oleszko). In keeping with
the tradition, the following performers will wow you
before the evening's films:

Tuesday 7-8pm Every year they're a hit! Mariachi 90 perform
in the theater lobbyat the opening reception
Tuesday 8pm Peter Sparling, Director of the Peter Sparling Dance Co.
dances solo, The Middle Agel', to an original poem of his own,
with music by Guilliame d'Maschaut.
Wednesday 7pm Frank Pahl presents Something Automatic
Thursday 7pm Arwulf presents Untitled Original
Friday 7pm Suzy Williams & Gerry Fialka perform Moon Over Weeki
Wachee, an outsider dance piece with super 8mm projection
Saturday 7pm M. A.Woodruff presents Long Hard Winter

The piece views the present-day manifold forms of "being on the move" in a time which
is characterized equally by great refugee movements and tourist currents, as by the international
transfer of goods and the virtual journeys of the "New Nomad Generation," whose home is the
Internet. The installation is a virtual trip through artistic intrepretations of the theme,which
are assembled together in an imaginary "Travel Art Archive."
