With crucial international support from Alliance FrancaiseEUNIC, and the European Union, this year’s edition of Maryland Film Festival’s popular Shorts at Artscape will launch Friday night (7/19) with short films curated by programmers of the International Short Film Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France, one of the world’s largest festivals devoted to short films.

Friday, July 19th (7pm) – Film Program

45 DEGREES (Georgis Grigorakis, Greece, Drama) – Athens, August 2012. 45 degrees Celsius. The fridge is empty. The situation is very tense. A father changes under the burden of the economic crisis. It’s getting dark and it’s still boiling hot. A capital city on the verge of explosion.

MOBILE (Verena Fels, Germany, Animation) – On the fringes of society, a cow tips the balance of destiny…
A STORY FOR THE MODLINS (Sergio Oksman, Spain, Documentary) – After appearing in the film ‘Rosemary’s Baby’, Elmer Modlin fled with his family to a far off country and shut himself away in a dark apartment for thirty years.
LA TERRA (Daniele Suraci, Italy, Drama) – Gianni has worked his entire life on his piece of land in the hope that his son Simon, aged 30, will continue taking care of it in the future. The two characters meet and collide in a series of gestures, looks and silences.
THE VOORMAN PROBLEM (Mark Gill, UK, Comedy) starring Martin Freeman of THE OFFICE (UK) – Doctor Williams is called in to examine the enigmatic Mr Voorman, a prisoner with a peculiar affliction: he believes he is a god. The doctor must decide on the sanity of Mr Voorman: is he a faker or a lunatic?

    If you have not seen Jake Mahaffy’s “Miracle Boy” (Narrative Shorts) do yourself a favor and catch it at Artscape. Of the few dozen movies I saw at the 2013 MFF, “Miracle Boy” was hands down the best that I saw.
