Headroom Screening Series Presents: 53rd Ann Arbor Film Festival 16mm Tour
Franklin Miller Screening Room, Adler Journalism Building — Friday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m.
A still from Friedl vom Gröller’s ‘Poetry for Sale,’ part of the Ann Arbor Film Festival’s 16mm collection
A touring collection of 13 short films makes its way to Iowa City on Friday from Ann Arbor, MI.
The Ann Arbor Film Festival, founded in 1963, is the oldest running experimental film festival in North America. Each year, it curates a variety of compilations from among the works submitted and travels with them across the country. This touring festival began in 1964, providing financial and artistic support to these emerging artists.
This year, the University of Iowa’s Headroom Screening Series will be hosting one of those touring collections, an assortment of 16mm films from across North America and Europe. Iowa City’s own Mike Gibisser, one of the programmers of the Headroom series, has a film (Blue Loop, July) in the tour.
David Dinnell, program director of the Ann Arbor Film Festival, will be traveling with the films and will present them at Friday’s event. The 90 minute screening, which is free and open to the public, will be held in room E105, the Franklin Miller Screening Room in the Adler Journalism Building on the University of Iowa campus. The Headroom website has the full schedule of films.
