Having hosted works by artists and filmmakers such as Andy Warhol, George Lucas and Gus Van Sant over the years, the Ann Arbor Film Festival is the premier avant garde film and new media showcase. This year's festival is over, but experimental film fans can still enjoy some of the selections at the Ann Arbor Film Festival 16mm Touring Program, hosted by the Aurora Picture Show. The 16 mm Film Tour features abstract and surrealistic works from ten filmmakers who are exploring a variety of topics. In Tokyo-Ebisu, a hectic Tokyo subway is examined with in-camera effects and purposeful soundtrack while a single-shot work, A Preface to Red, examines movement and color. In Under the Shadow of Marcus Mountain, a part of a series of works from filmmaker Robert Schaller, rudimentary filming techniques reveal an ethereal look at a mountainside landscape.
