Performance Network To Host Ann Arbor Film Festival For Two Nights

The Ann Arbor Film Festival will present two nights of its Cinema and Music Performance series at 11:30 p.m. Thursday, March 26 and Saturday, March 28 at the Performance Network Theatre. Performances on March 26 are "A Home Inside," a live presentation with three 16mm projectors by Berlinbased artists OJOBOCA (Anja Dornieden and Juan David Gonzalez Monroy) and a performance by Warsawbased artist and musician Wojciech Bakowski.

On March 28, Ann Arborbased musician and Kranky recording artist Justin Walter will perform analog electronics with projections by New Orleans based multimedia artist Jane Cassidy. Following that, San Francisco BayArea artists and filmmakers Alfonso Alvarez and Steve Dye will perform "In This Tunnel," a work for four 16mm projectors, sound and FM broadcast.

"We are very excited to partner with the Ann Arbor Film Festival to present these two nights of performances," said Sara Dean, company manager at the Network. "One of the first things someone said to me when I started working here in Ann Arbor last summer was how awesome the festival is and how I should make sure I get to go, so when it worked out that we were going to have this partnership it was a great moment. The Network is happy to host and get involved in such a great Ann Arbor tradition."

The Ann Arbor Film Festival, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is the longestrunning independent and experimental film festival in North America, founded by George Manupelli in 1963.
