About the Maryland Film Festival

The mission of the Maryland Film Festival (MdFF) is to bring films, filmmakers, and audiences together in a friendly, inclusive atmosphere that reflects the unique aspects of our community, while participating in and adding to the larger film dialogue across the country and across the world. Film for Everyone.

Founded in 1993 as the nonprofit Producer’s Club of Maryland, MdFF owns and operates the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway Theatre, a 1915 Renaissance Revival style theatre, renovated and reopened in May 2017, as well as the annual five-day Maryland Film Festival.

In the fall of 2018 MdFF adopted a five-year plan (2019-2023) to fully realize its role in Baltimore and the field as a respite for filmmakers, a world-class destination for cinema, and a stalwart advocate for the democratizing the power of story, as told through film, and expressed through each individual storyteller’s voice. The SNF Parkway functions as a multi-disciplinary film, community, and education hub serving a broad cross-section of the Baltimore public and beyond. MdFF works to leverage the powerful assets of the Johns Hopkins University, Maryland Institute College of Art, and surrounding campus communities to function as a vibrant, regional nerve center for dialogue, discussion, and debate on the key issues of the day, with film as the central axis in broad public discussions. Through programming, education and community ventures, MdFF is establishing a year-round a platform for “all” voices that are reflective of the diverse population of greater Baltimore and the nation.

To achieve this new strategic vision and plan, MdFF is making a major investments in capacity building and infrastructure, including significant investments in institutional advancement and programming.

Since 2017, the SNF Parkway has welcomed more than 110,000 moviegoers and screened 800 films, from over 60 countries. MdFF has created a world-class cinema program with films from every era, regional and genres, with a focus on supporting emerging filmmakers, and offering audiences an immersive new window into the art form. Many films and events are not offered anywhere else in Baltimore. MdFF is becoming a vibrant regional nerve center – a civic commons for great film, dialogue, emerging voices and innovators.
