We’re looking forward to March 23-26, 2023 in Downtown Hagerstown!
Welcome, filmmakers, to the Maryland International Film Festival-Hagerstown. We are excited about our 11th Maryland International Film Festival-Hagerstown, happening March 23-26, 2023! More than 100 films are being shown during the four day event, at five venues in Downtown Hagerstown.
This festival has been praised as being a Movie Magazine's top 50 film festival worth the entry fee. For the past nine festivals, we've been bringing in the finest films from around the world. The film festival became a 501(c)3 in 2009, and was first held in 2011. Hollywood Director Joe Carnahan has been our volunteer and honorary creative director and has been a welcome partner with our festival! He brought us such films as "The Grey" and "The A-Team" with Liam Neeson, and we also screened “Stretch” and sneak peaks at other firms.
The festival is conveniently located downtown; all venues are in the middle of the Arts and Entertainment District. And after the films, we host some of the best after parties with fantastic food and drinks!
This is a great opportunity for directors and producers to get their work showcased. There are investors and production companies who attend the festival looking for new talent and we have seen many of the movies screened go on to be hugely successful.
The Maryland International Film Festival - Hagerstown, is organized by filmmakers and marketing executives who understand the power of film and support the talent of the independent filmmaker. Our goal is to fill theaters to capacity, encourage the development of filmmaker networks including media, distribution and the association with other artists.
MDIFF - Hagerstown, believes in the importance of giving back to the community and will be donating a portion of the proceeds to charities around the globe.
