MARYLAND FILM FESTIVAL 2011 OPENS THURSDAY WITH HOST FILM CRITIC ANN HORNADAY!

Seltzer Works

A Maryland Film Festival tradition, opening night is devoted to a program highlighting the variety and high quality of work being done in short film and video, with each director present to discuss his/her work.

2011 Opening Night Shorts are: David Lowery's Pioneer (starring Will Oldham); Jessica Edwards' Seltzer Works; Zachary Treitz's We're Leaving; and Christopher Radcliff and Lauren Wolkstein's The Strange Ones.

Hosting the evening will be The Washington Post's Ann Hornaday. As Festival Director Jed Dietz writes in the 2011 program guide, "There is no one better to host this evening than Washington Post film critic and writer Ann Hornaday. A graduate of Smith College, Ann was writing about film in Austin as that community's film scene exploded; many of us came to know her through her years with the Baltimore Sun, and she has reached even wider audiences at the Post. She attends the major market festivals such as Cannes, Toronto, and Sundance, and she has been a great friend of this festival. Most importantly, she is a discerning but tireless supporter of filmmakers of all stripes, and her enthusiasm for the movie art form has no limit."
