MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The mission of the Annapolis Film Festival is to encourage the development of all aspects of the creative arts in and around Annapolis through the cinema experience. We seek independent films, features, documentaries and shorts, that will inspire, enlighten and entertain all audiences on a variety of topics, promoting Annapolis as a cultural arts center.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Annapolis Film Festival made its debut in March 2013. Nestled on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay, the city is best known for its rich naval history, its charm as a vacation destination and its many restaurants and galleries. The film festival had an extraordinary inaugural year with five venues in the historic and walkable city center. We look forward to year two.

Among the highlights of our 2013 season were our spotlight event, A Retrospective and Conversation with Director, Albert Mayles, preceded by a screening of this seminal documentarian's film, Gimme Shelter. Other notable guests included actress/director S. Epatha Merkerson (Law and Order), actress Marla Gibbs (The Jeffersons), and noted speaker/writer/producer Ambassador Shabazz.

For 2014, we strongly encourage submission of films with a tie to Maryland (made in Maryland or with a producer, director, or actor from Maryland). We host highlight events on The Environment and The African American Experience and feature a Student Shorts Showcase.

Beyond the screenings, the festival offers educational and networking opportunities. We host an engaging and lively series of panel discussions with leading industry professionals including producers, directors, actors, press, and distributors. Filmmakers will have an opportunity to participate in these events, as well as numerous receptions that provide a fun and relaxed environment to meet and discuss your work with industry colleagues.

As a new and rapidly growing festival, The Annapolis Film Festival wishes to establish this beautiful city as a haven for filmmakers to showcase global perspectives and independent thought. The Annapolis Film Festival is seeking a total of 50–70 films to be shown March 27th to 30th, 2014.
