Los Angeles Filmforum brings the 16mm show of the Ann Arbor Film Festival Tour to Los Angeles, a great program of short films including recent experimental, narrative, documentary and animated films from across the US all in 16mm.  Featuring two films from LA as well, and multiple premieres in Los Angeles!

The highlights are constant.  Several makers intensely deal with materials, sometimes of film, sometimes of other sources (yarn or garbage or old film clips) to find their beauty.  Explorations of natural and intensely human-built spaces; abstractions; fun and games; books and classic tales; pinhole lenses and the electric currents on which our society runs – all come into play.  Come see what can be done in film – real living celluloid – today!

$10 general, $6 students/seniors; free for Filmforum members.  Available by credit card in advance from Brown Paper Tickets at or by cash or check at the door.
