The Maryland Film Festival (MdFF) is proud to present Film at Artscape, a series of free screenings throughout the Artscape weekend in the beautifully restored SNF Parkway Theatre at the corner of North Avenue and Charles Street!

Program Notes

Throughout Artscape weekend, the SNF Parkway is proud to present shorts from the 2018 Maryland Film Festival completely FREE! Join us Saturday and Sunday, between 1 and 7 PM, when a different program of films will start at the top of each hour.

Comedy Shorts:
After the laughter comes tears. Sometimes those tears are from laughing so hard you cry, and sometimes they’re from crying so hard you eventually have to laugh. Whether fueled by chuckles found in the absurd, or the painful truths hidden in dark humor, these shorts are sometimes funny haha and sometimes funny oh no!
