Maryland Film Festival in ONE WEEK!

Check out this video made by the good folks over at Creative Alliance MovieMakers (CAmm) featuring the staff of the Maryland Film Festival. We are getting pretty excited for the festival which is just one week away!

JUST ANNOUNCED! FIRST FILMMAKERS TAKING CHARGE CONFERENCE!

Friday, May 7, 2010, 9am – 5pm

The Maryland Film Festival is pleased to announce a new filmmaker-focused event to take place the first full day of MFF 2010, May 7, in the Filmmaker Tent Village. This intimate conference is a daylong set of case study roundtables and networking opportunities focused on identifying methods to connect audiences and filmmakers in an increasingly overpopulated (and tech-savvy) market. More personal and interactive than big festival panels, attendees will receive a thorough understanding of how to navigate and take charge of the current climate of film distribution and promotion.

Sponsored by MFF Board member Stephanie Carter, and using funding from a two -year Warhol Foundation grant, the day long event will bring visiting and local filmmakers & aficionados together with a variety of distributors, critics, and exhibitors in a spirit of mutual support and cooperation that the festival was founded upon.
