Annapolis is a quaint little town close to the water that is probably most famous for its history and military school. They aim to change this with their first ever international Film Festival from March 21-24, 2013.
The Festival will host a variety of engaging guest speakers, panels and discussions, and internationally acclaimed filmmakers.
The program (PDF) boasts ninety films, fifty filmmakers and eight panels with several very interesting looking films. Nicely done, considering this is the first year that they are doing it. The prices are reasonable too ($75 for a festival pass, $30 for a one day pass, and $10 for individual tickets).
