(Oct. 6, 2008)--The UTSA Department of Art and Art History New Media Studio Program will host the 46th annual Ann Arbor Film Festival Tour at 7 p.m., Oct. 9-10 in the Buena Vista Street Building Aula Canaria (1.328) at the Downtown Campus.

The oldest experimental film festival in the United States is free and open to the public. The tour offers film screenings that for many audiences are their only opportunities to see such forms of film art.

From July 2008 through January 2009, the Ann Arbor Film Festival will tour the globe visiting theaters, art house cinemas, museums, universities and microcinemas. The AAFF tour is a collection of the finest cutting-edge, independent and artistically inspired short films. The films cross all genres including experimental, documentary, animation and narrative.

AAFF is a pioneer of the traveling tour concept, having launched tour shows in Paris, Los Angeles and Berkeley in 1964. Since that time, the tour has presented hundreds of influential works, including films by Barbara Hammer, Gus Van Sant, Sally Cruikshank, Don Hertzfeldt, Bill Brown, Ross McLaren, Paul Winkler, James Duesing and Jay Rosenblatt.
