Maryland Film Festival releases 12 more titles
The Maryland Film Festival announced a third round of feature-length films to be included in this year’s lineup today. So far, there have been a lot of films with local connections, such as Lotfy Nathan’s much-anticipated 12 O’Clock Boys, Matthew Porterfield’s I Used to Be Darker, and If We Shout Loud Enough, the documentary about the band Double Dagger.
This most recent slate of flicks may not offer the same local connections, but includes some fascinating films like Ryan White’s documentary Good Ol’ Freda about the Beatle’s secretary; The Rambler, starring the intriguing Dermot Mulroney; and AJ Schnack’s and David Wilson’s We Always Lie to Strangers, which is described as av “documentary story of family, community, music and tradition, built over five years and set against the backdrop of Branson, Missouri, one of the biggest tourist destinations in America.”
