In the good old days, the AA screening committee all watched every
single film submitted, every foot. Of course they may have eaten
pizza during a mediocre one, but they all watched them together.

Separating out screening to different groups is fraught with
problems. If someone who loves computer animation is given a few
cinema-verite films, they probably will reject them because they
aren't of a genre they like. And vice versa.

Ann Arbor used to be a great festival, but I fear it's no longer what
it used to be, at least from what I read, and saw on one of the
recent tours.
