The films show a diverse range of storytelling, emotional depth and filmmaking styles that have something for everyone including a thriller about a possessed rug; an aging glass maestro and his legacy; a laugh out loud night of debauchery; a transgender woman faces her trauma; gentrification within our nation’s capital; isolation of a Turkish native living in the US; a married couple partnering as entrepreneurs; and finally the relationship between a man and his grief.

In spite of an unprecedented year of challenges for us all, each film represents an expression of our passions, concerns, hopes and dreams, as we look toward carrying our creative momentum into realizing a brighter future and stronger Baltimore and filmmaking community.
