The 2018 Maryland Film Festival runs from May 2-6 at various locations in Baltimore’s Station North neighborhood.

They include a Japanese silent film long thought lost, but newly restored and being presented at the festival with live orchestral accompaniment by the Alloy Orchestra, a documentary about Mr. Rogers, and four films in which Baltimore plays a prominent role.
