We are thrilled to announce that Maryland Film Festival has won Baltimore magazine’s 2013 Best of Baltimore award for best festival! We are honored to be part of what makes Charm City so great, and we look forward to bringing you another incredible festival year! Look for the article on newsstands in the August 2013 issue of Baltimore magazine.
Here’s what they had to say about us:
“There is nothing commercial about the Maryland Film Festival. It doesn’t cater to celebrities or any kind of studio agenda; instead it’s a veritable orgy for film lovers of all stripes and colors. Like thought-provoking documentaries? Check out Skizz Cyzyk and Joe Tropea‘s Hit & Stay, about the Catonsville Nine. Like moody, evocative art-house dramas? Check out Matt Porterfield‘s I Used To Be Darker or Eliza Hittman‘s It Felt Like Love. Like the kind of film that will inspire a ferocious post-film debate? How about the challenging (and mind-blowing) Post Tenebras Lux. Turning the Station North Arts District into exactly what city planners envisioned – a lively hub for the nurturing, discussion, and celebration of art – the MFF has become the must-attend event of the spring. md-filmfest.com.”
