Whether you’re a film buff or casual moviegoer, The Maryland Film Festival will leave you inspired!

For the span of a few days, the center of cinematic gravity had shifted from wherever you’d usually look for it (Hollywood, New York, Paris) to Baltimore.” — Richard Brody, Film Critic at The New Yorker

The Festival hub will be the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway, the 1915 movie house that returned in 2017 as Baltimore’s centerpiece for film appreciation and education.

In the past, the Festival has hosted famed directors including Barry Levinson, Kathryn Bigelow, Melvin Van Peebles, Greta Gerwig, Jonathan Demme, Alex Gibney, Barry Jenkins, Matthew Porterfield, David Lowery, Kris & Joe Swanberg and Lena Dunham.
