About This Deal

Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard once said, "The cinema is truth at 24 frames per second," making slow-mo sports replays and sped-up Benny Hill gags nothing but cruel, cruel lies. Get the real deal with today's Groupon for a one year Presenter level membership to the Maryland Film Festival, including free year-round screenings in Baltimore. Hailed by such Charm City cinematic auteurs as John Waters, Barry Levinson, and certified genius David Simon, the Maryland Film Festival showcases a vast selection of movies each year to ignite discussion between talking picture manufacturers and their enthusiasts. Among last year's festival highlights, local electronic musical mastermind Dan Deacon hosted a showing of Total Recall, while Waters himself explored Paul Greengrass' harrowing United 93. While waiting for the 2011 festival, members will still get to enjoy a wide variety of benefits, including free screenings every week, advanced preview screenings, and the e-newsletter. For more information, check out the Maryland Film Festival's blog.

About Maryland Film Festival

Every year on the first weekend of May, downtown Baltimore's streets bustle as tens of thousands of moviegoers visit local theaters to watch films shot, directed, and edited around the globe. The Maryland Film Festival, like a freakish hurdle sprinter, runs for five days and showcases about 50 feature films and 75 short pieces—ranging from documentaries to animations—many of which are presented by their respective filmmakers or celebrity guest hosts. Past hosts have included Ian MacKaye and Branford Marsalis, and legendary filmmaker John Waters regularly makes an appearance at the festival, hosting a feature film of his choice. Attendees may also stimulate and expand their sensory palates with special events that have included international flicks, three-dimensional movies, and vintage silent films synced to live music.
