So. Md. Film Fes­ti­val to host mini events in re­gion

Maryland Independent - - News -

The South­ern Mary­land Film Fes­ti­val has an­nounced plans to hold sev­eral Mini-Film Fes­ti­vals through­out 2017 in all three South­ern Mary­land coun­ties, rather than its reg­u­lar two-day pro­gram cen­tered in Leonard­town. At­ten­dees of the 2017 mini fests will see the best of the films the fes­ti­val has of­fered over the pre­vi­ous two years, as well a sneak pre­view of movies be­ing en­tered into the 2018 fes­ti­val.

By part­ner­ing with new host com­mu­ni­ties, Wood said the steer­ing com­mit­tee is “hop­ing to find new au­di­ences, new film­mak­ers and new spon­sors for fu­ture film fes­ti­vals” to be held in Leonard­town. Wood said the fes­ti­val will re­turn to Leonard­town with meet-and-greet re­cep­tions, Q&A ses­sions with film­mak­ers and panel dis­cus­sions in 2018.

The South­ern Mary­land Film Fes­ti­val was cre­ated in 2015 as a place for lo­cal film­mak­ers to show­case their work, and to in­tro­duce au­di­ences to the unique styles, ex­pe­ri­ences and per­spec­tives of film­mak­ers in the tri-county area.
