The 18th Annual Maryland Film Festival (May 4-8) kicked off Wednesday night with a program of short films. The festival continues until Sunday night with the closing film, Hunter Gatherer, and between now and then, there are a whole lot of movies to choose from, and if you go you're going to have to make some tough choices. This morning, our special edition of the Maryland Morning Movie Mayhem is designed for folks who want a few ideas on what to see. Joining us, as they do every month, are Jed Dietz, the Festival's executive director, who's with Tom in the studio, and Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday, with us by phone from her DC office.
During the second and third segments of today's special edition, we’ll be joined in the studio by three of the film makers whose work is being screened this weekend: Lauren Wolkstein, Zach Clark and Marilyn Ness.
