The Ann Arbor Film Festival is deeply committed to community engagement and developing bonds with local organizations and education institutions. It's a vital facet of our mission to engage folks of all identities and interests with remarkable cinematic experiences.

We are incredibly proud of our Community Partner and Education Partner programs, in place to facilitate a symbiotic relationship between the AAFF and other organizations that help shape their communities. Whether it be through public support or expansive outreach events, the AAFF has nurtured a legacy of deep involvement with our Education and Community Partners.

We extend a huge thank you to the Community and Education partners that have helped bring AAFF55 to fruition. It truly takes a village!
