The 2012 Maryland Film Festival was held the first weekend of May and I was fortunate enough to be able to volunteer as a Box Office Sales Rep each day. It allowed me to speak with attendees and cinephiles alike. Not only did I work, but I got to see loads of films and catch many great Q&A’s. Most of the films you’ll read about in the festival posts will not be easy to search for at your local theatre or Netflix queue becase many are still in distribution limbo and haven’t been picked up yet (as is the case with many festivals). Don’t let it discourage you! Just be patient and keep counting down the days until (insert a summer blockbuster you’re looking forward too i.e. The Dark Knight Rises) opens! But if you need a quick fix, check out www.md-filmfest.com for a complete list of films and their filmmakers.
