We Say...

The Maryland Film Festival has hosted big-name filmmakers such as Kathryn Bigelow, Lena Dunham, and Baltimorean John Waters, but it also focuses on fostering local talent. The festival’s approximately 50 full-length and 75 short film selections are new and old, and they come from near and far. You can check out Baltimore-centric documentaries such as Lotfy Nathan’s 12 O’Clock Boys, Jeffrey Schwarz’s I Am Divine, or Gabriel DeLoach’s If We Shout Loud Enough. Or go to a screening of Matt Porterfield’s Baltimore-made drama, I Used to Be Darker. For something entirely different, there’s Ryan White’s Good Ol’ Freda (pictured), which tells the story of a girl who served as the Beatles’ secretary. But if you’re looking to see some famous faces, watch Prince Avalanche, from the director of Pineapple Express. It stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch as two highway workers who form an unlikely friendship. Either way, there’s something for every film buff. For our full coverage of the fest, see next week’s Film Fest Frenzy issue. (Alexa Kwiatkoski)
