The Ann Arbor Film Festival is the longest running independent experimental film festival in North America. We speak with the Festival’s executive director about bringing cinematic interactivity to downtown Ann Arbor.

Tonight marks the opening of the 54th annual Ann Arbor Film Festival, which will run through Sunday. The majority of the over 200 screenings and presentations for this week-long festival will take place at the Michigan Theater in downtown Ann Arbor, but there’ll be a few other satellite events as well in what promises to be a busy week.

Current State’s Jamie Paisley speaks with the executive director of the festival, Leslie Raymond.
