May 5th & 6th
Apollo West End Cinema
SCI-FI-LONDON is committed to presenting short films as a part of the festival line-up. Each year we put out a call for short film and each year we receive hundreds of amazing stories from around the world.
It is always a difficult task to select which films to bring you, so many of them are exceptional. However, we hope we have brought together a great and eclectic mix of fantastic film for our 6th festival.
Maryland: May 4th
The Maryland Film Festival, funded by an unusual
public/private partnership in Maryland, has two practical economic
development goals: 1) to create a world class film festival centered
in Baltimore, and 2) to bring filmmakers to Maryland as a way to
encourage future production in the state.
Our artistic goals are the foundation for everything we do. We recognize that there are many film festivals around the world, other good ones in and around Maryland, so the Maryland Film Festival is dedicated to adding something to what is already available. We are already establishing a unique personality. We want our festival audience to have a special experience.
While not a formal market, the Maryland Film Festival has become an advocate for films and filmmakers as they enter the marketplace.
