DINCA will be in Ann Arbor, Michigan, from 3.28–4.1, reporting on the 2012 Ann Arbor Film Festival.

Today is the first day of the 50th annual Ann Arbor Film Festival. The AAFF has a superlative lineup of events this year, with over 200 independent and experimental works, including new work by Deborah Stratman, Ben Rivers, Ben Russell, Michael Robinson, David Gatten, Laida Lertxundi, Kerry Laitala, Scott Stark, Mary Helena Clark, Fern Silva, Bobby Abate, Jodie Mack, Evan Meaney, and many more, plus some very special treasures and gems from avant-garde cinema.

If you’re in midwest, this is a week of events worth road-trippin’ to; if you’re not in the midwest, this is a week of events worth road-trippin’ to.

The 50th AAFF will include special programs of work by Peter Rose, Robert Nelson, Barbara Hammer, Michael Robinson, a juror presentation by Kathy Geritz, Phil Solomon, Paul Clipson, a Leighton Pierce gallery walkthrough, and three Bruce Baille retrospectives.

As part of the AAFF’s 50 Screen initiative, Phil Solomon has installed his “American Falls” installation at the Work Gallery; Leighton Pierce has installed his “Threshold of Peripheral Induction” at the University of Michigan’s Slusser Gallery; and the Michigan Theater installations, the Gallery Project exhibition, the Nickels Arcade exhibition feature plenty more treats.

More on the AAFF’s 50 Screen Initiative:

The 50th Ann Arbor Film Festival presents 50 SCREENS, a city-wide series of free film, video and moving image installations. Throughout film festival week local, national and international artists will illuminate more than fifty screens in galleries, theaters, shops, outdoor locations and non-traditional screening spaces in Ann Arbor. The intention of this expansion beyond traditional cinema screenings is to more widely engage the public with film as an art form in celebration of the 50th Ann Arbor Film Festival, taking place March 27 – April 1, 2012.

As aforementioned, DINCA will be in Ann Arbor reporting on the AAFF from Wednesday, March 28 – Sunday, April 1, 2012. Andrew Rosinski and Theodore Darst will be representing DINCA; if you, too, are at the AAFF, let us know.
