Ann Arbor Film Festival to Open with New Film from Helen Hill

A total of 188 films, videos and live performance will be taking place at the 49th annual Ann Arbor Film Festival, running from March 22-27. 40 different programs organize this year’s diverse slate of offerings, which include over 20 premieres.

The Ann Arbor festival features work from a variety of different independent and experimental filmmakers. This year’s opening night screenings will include “The Florestine Collection,” the last film from the late filmmaker Helen Hill, completed by her husband, Paul Gailiunas.

A number of festival alumni will be back for this year’s edition. Doug Goodwin, Laura Kranning, Lawrence Jordan, Jennifer Reeder, and Michael Robinson will all be returning with more work to screen for Ann Arbor audiences.

Other highlights on the slate include a pair of Chinese documentaries, Wang Bing’s 14-hour epic “Crude Oil” and Huang Weikai’s “Disorder.” More information on the festival and its programs can be found through the Ann Arbor Film Festival’s website.
