Special Program


This hand-picked retrospective takes viewers on a visual celebration of some of the most outstanding film art presented in festivals past. Vicki Honeyman directed the Ann Arbor Film Festival for 15 years, spanning the 26th through the 40th festivals (1988 – 2002). Here, she shares a baker’s dozen of mostly 16mm films from the 15th through 38th festivals (1977 – 2000), plus one bonus film in competition. Honeyman’s passion for film began while attending the Wayne (State) Cinema Guild in Detroit as a high school student in the 1960s. She went on to earn a degree in film studies at the University of Michigan while watching up to three films a day as part of two campus film groups. In the 1970s, Honeyman joined AAFF’s screening committee, which met nightly to view every film entry using the festival’s 16mm projector, a Kodak Pageant. Honeyman remembers this experience fondly. The former festival director returns this year as a screener and adviser. This program has been made possible with the generous support of Dan Moerman.
