This video documenting last year’s Opening Night Shorts event (hosted by Barry Levinson) was created by the Creative Alliance Movie Makers program for us last year.
From the Maryland Film Festival program:
We devote our Opening Night to short films because we strive to spotlight a segment of the moviemaking world that, despite its importance to the total art form, is far too often overlooked.
The films showcased last year were:
Gnatural Wonders by Bennett Battaile
Doxology by Michael Langan
My Olympic Summer by Daniel Robin
Help Is Coming by Ben More
Salim Baba by Tim Sternberg and Francisco Bello
Politics of Preschool by Heidi Van Lier
We’ll have announcements about this year’s Opening Night program soon…
