“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.”
