49th Ann Arbor Film Fest shines a spotlight on experimental films
It's the longest running independent and experimental film festival in the country.
So while you won’t see a George Clooney flick at the festival, you could catch a documentary about industrial music, or a two minute short about London street life filmed using an iPhone.
Donald Harrison is the festival’s executive director. He says "we're seeing a lot of different approaches to telling stories or to working within the art form, and that’s very much what our festival’s been about for 49 years."
More than 180 films will be screened during the six-day festival. Harrison says about 15,000 people are expected to attend the festival, which ends Sunday, Mar. 27.
