“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
Explore world premieres, Baltimore media makers, and exciting selections from the international film festival circuit! MdFF is known as the “Filmmakers Festival” because ALL North American films are hosted by the filmmakers and audiences get to truly engage during countless panel discussions (okay you could count them if you’d like).

MEMBERS HAVE MORE FUN

Our Parkway Movie Club Membership program helps to bring artists and filmmakers together through film. We provide our members with discounts at local community organizations, advanced film premieres, and more. And in exchange, our members help us keep our promise to the Baltimore arts community!

FILMMAKERS TAKE CENTER STAGE

For every North American feature film screened within the festival, a filmmaker attends the festival to present their work. You will mingle with filmmakers who are excited to engage with thoughtful audiences in a relaxed atmosphere to share and explore their work.
