I know, I know: I sound like a broken record. Every time you go to the blog, I’ve posted about another film festival. First Tournees French Films, then the JHU Film Festival, and now the Maryland Film Festival. Who knew Baltimore was such a hub for the movie industry?

The festival showcases films from around the world and around the corner. Check out the complete schedule to get a sense for the scope and variety of movies. There is something for everyone.

Can’t make it to the event? No worries, have your own in-house movie marathon viewing films from the library’s collection. We’ve got films in every genre, including: comedies, dramas, horror films, Westerns, thrillers. And, films by local directors like John Waters and Barry Levinson and legendary folks like Fellini and Bergman. A TV junkie? No worries, we’ve got you covered, too.

For film nerds (like me), don’t forget to use our Film & Media Studies Research Guide to find scholarship about film, reviews, screenplays, and basic information. Sure, IMDb is good, but we’ve got even more.

Whether you’re at the festival or on your couch, sit back and enjoy!
