LETTER FROM JAY NELSON AAFF PRESIDENT

Dear Festival-goers,
To paraphrase Mark Twain, the reports of the demise of the Ann Arbor Film Festival have been greatly exaggerated. You may have heard rumors or read in some newspapers that the AAFF was going out of business or was abandoning its mission but, fortunately, neither is true.
In fact. just this past summer, the Festival's Board of Directors agreed unanimously to reaffirm our mission of supporting and promoting experimental and independent film. If anything, our goals are to expand on that mission and do more to support filmmakers beyond having a six-day festival every spring. And, while some may question the decision we made three years ago to open up the Festival to video and digital
media in addition to 16mm film, we felt that it
was entirely in keeping with the spirit of the AAFF -in 1963 when the Festival was founded, 16mm film was the preferred format for filmmakers on a budget, but today, few can afford it and have opted to work on video and digital media instead.
With far more films to choose from, the decision greatly enhanced our on-screen offerings. But it was good for our finances as well -submissions and submission fees have nearly quintupled in the last three years.
As a result of that and other strategies, the Festival is healthier financially than it's been in quite some time. But. like virtually every small non-profit arts organization in Michigan, we've faced cutbacks in government and foundation grants -becoming a member of the AAFF is now more important than ever -that continue to challenge us as we work to ensure that the Festival will continue to grow and thrive in the years to come.
A key part of that effort is the team we now have in place to oversee it. Our Festival Director, Christen McArdle, and Director of Operations, Nate Heilman, are smart. talented and hard-working people who have great plans and ideas for the AAFF and we as a board feel lucky to have them.
Finally, I'd like to thank all of our friends, volunteers and supporters -we literally could not function without them. Thanks especially to our friends at the Michigan Theater who've been so generous with their advice, time and support. We really are in this together.
All of us on the board hope that you'll enjoy this year's Ann Arbor Film Festival.
Thanks for coming.
JAY NELSON
PRESIDENT
LETTER FROM CHRISTEN MCARDLE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Hello Ann Arbor,

I'd like to welcome you to the 44th Ann Arbor Film Festival. and thank you for welcoming me to your community. It has been a pleasure to get to know this fine city for the last six months.
If there is one aspect of the AAFF experience that I have consistently recognized and appreciated, it is the undying love that Ann Arbor has for the arts, and for ANYTHING that pushes the envelope, whether it is artistic, political or even theoretical. Ann Arbor is a community that likes to think, be challenged and celebrate life. Your awareness for the unconventional is keen, and your appreciation for countercultures is valiant; and it has affected me in a profound way.
Being originally from the Midwest, I am

thankful for Ann Arbor's influence, and I am relieved that such a diverse place exists in the Midwest. We live in transitional times, and are faced with adjustments and adaptations that force us to evaluate our values and priorities at all hours of the day. We are bombarded with multi-media, extreme politics, corporate saturation and pop culture. I will openly admit that I worry about the future of our Americana -our culture and folklore, and our role and influence in the world -and I know I'm not the only one... Ann Arbor is a place where everyone fearlessly fights for what they believe in, and perpetually finds ways to express their beliefs. Not every place in the world has such imperative liberties available.
So this week, I hope you will join us in a celebration of everything that lives and thrives outside of the box. There is so much to be grateful for in regards to the Ann Arbor Film Festival. Never have I seen an institution that allows so much creative freedom, or a community that embraces creativity so intensely. Look around and commend yourselves, because you exemplity the strongest element of the human spirit -free-wheeling and thoughtful artistic expression.
This festival was created to ensure that there was a forum that was an alternative to mainstream media. We strive to support the artists, and we celebrate film as an art, not just as entertainment. As we tip our hats to the many talented filmmakers this week and party together 'til the wee hours of the morning (uh-oh), I hope you remember that this festival is a celebration of differences and of diversity. At the AAFF. we can witness and support the lives of others in hidden corners of the world, and we can observe and appreciate artistic expression that has no boundaries.
That kind of open-mindedness is rare, and I am grateful to know how passionate you are about all of it. This festival is yours Ann Arbor, and I thank you for helping this important celebration thrive.
Cheers to you,
CHRISTEN MCARDLE
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
