MD Film Fest begins TONIGHT!

Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best
Wuthering Heights
Maryland Film Festival starts tonight with an opening night of short films at MICA's Brown Center. Following tonight is a weekend FULL of film that is not to be missed. I'm always most excited about the animated shorts programs, but I can't help also being interested in this still frame from director Ryan O’Nan's debut feature: "Brookyln Brother's Beat the Best", or feeling slightly giddy about Andrea Arnold's dramatic take on a Brontë sister classic. Not to mention the annual Jon Water's pick or closing night's debut of Todd Solondz film "Dark Horse" Starring Jordan Gelber, Selma Blair, Mia Farrow, Christopher Walken, Justin Bartha, Donna Murphy, Mary Joy. Excited yet? There are so many more to choose from. Something for everyone - and if you're attention deficit like most of us, there are PLENTY of shorts programs. In fact, they're a MD Film Fest specialty! This festival is truly one of Baltimore's shining gems and we can't encourage you enough times to come on out and see some films. Festival Passes and tickets to individual screenings can be purchased online, or on the festival grounds on Charles St. this weekend.
