Congratulations to MFF 2010′s DOGTOOTH, which against long odds was nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Foreign Language Film! If you missed this edgy Greek thriller at the festival and during its late-Fall theatrical run at The Charles, as of this week you can now catch it on DVD. Here’s a New York Times piece commenting on this year’s foreign-film nominees…

The Maryland Film Festival is pleased to announce a new filmmaker-focused event to take place the first full day of MFF 2010, May 7, in the Filmmaker Tent Village. This intimate conference is a daylong set of case study roundtables and networking opportunities focused on identifying methods to connect audiences and filmmakers in an increasingly overpopulated (and tech-savvy) market. More personal and interactive than big festival panels, attendees will receive a thorough understanding of how to navigate and take charge of the current climate of film distribution and promotion.
Sponsored by MFF Board member Stephanie Carter, and using funding from a two -year Warhol Foundation grant, the day long event will bring visiting and local filmmakers & aficionados together with a variety of distributors, critics, and exhibitors in a spirit of mutual support and cooperation that the festival was founded upon.
Passes for FILMMAKERS TAKING CHARGE are on sale today!
Call (410)752-8083 or visit our website to order!
General Admission: $75
Students/Creative Alliance Members: $50
