Ann Arbor, Michigan—Mark your calendar and RSVP today for Walk Right In, 7:30–10:30 p.m., this coming Saturday, August 3! Come enjoy an evening of short experimental films with food, friends, and fun under the summer sky. We’ll gather in the backyard at 827 Brooks Street, belonging to longtime AAFF friends and hosts (who typically make a fabulous sangria for the occasion!) in the Water Hill neighborhood of Ann Arbor. The evening is free (though donations to help sustain North America’s oldest experimental film festival are always welcome and encouraged).
This past March, AAFF was ranked the No. 1 film festival in North America in the 2019 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest! Come see what all the fuss is about.
More details about the free Walk Right In event this Saturday are here. See you August 3 at Walk Right In — not a drive-in, but a walk-in! All are welcome.
About the Ann Arbor Film Festival
