Special programs will explore 60 years of 3-D films and 3-D film technology, celebrate the work of UM screenwriting grad David Newman (“Bonnie & Clyde,” “What’s Up Doc” and “Superman”) and the silent film comedy of Harold Lloyd.
But mostly, the more than 30 films, screened over four days, will be the brightest and the best of contemporary films now playing the international festival circuit. Films will be screened in the Michigan Theater’s historic auditorium, the State Theater and the University of Michigan’s Angell Hall; additional special 3D lecture will be presented at the main branch of the Ann Arbor District Library.
