Become a Friend of the Festival and you’ll not only enjoy our growing annual five-day festival, you’ll get so much more throughout the year with several events each month, including our award-winning Gunky’s Basement series curated and hosted by Dan Deacon and Jimmy Joe Roche, and our newly launched MFF/WYPR Spotlight Series featuring a post screening interview with the filmmaker and WYPR’s Tom Hall.
Maryland Film Festival brings films, filmmakers and audiences together in an atmosphere that’s both comfortable and totally fun. Groundbreaking films. Independent films. Classic films. Big studio prerelease films. You’ll experience them all year long and see something that’s truly different. Friends of the Festival screenings present the art of filmmaking the way it’s meant to be — entertaining and enlightening.
HELP – Keep filmmaking alive in Maryland.
Last year, all film, television and commercial production combined pumped $75 million into Maryland’s economy. When you become a Friend of the Festival, you’ll be supporting the annual Maryland Film Festival held in May. Since 1999, it’s been the best showcase for filmmakers to see how great Maryland is for productions of all kinds.
IT’S EASY – Membership starts at just $50.
We don’t ask you to commit to a certain number of predetermined events during the year. Instead you can enjoy the flexibility of attending events as they fit into your schedule. By becoming a Friend of the Festival, you’ll help us build upon what we’ve already started — bringing extraordinary filmmakers and their films to Maryland.
