Event: Heritage Film Festival

*Note from The (unofficial) Upper Marlboro blog: Indie film is near and dear to my heart and I was so happy to hear of this (free!!) event that I had to share with the community! Let’s support county arts/artists and also our neighbors!

Independent Films with an Independent Spirit!

The Heritage Film Festival showcases an eclectic collection of animation, horror, comedy, documentary, experimental and fantasy films in a two-day/3 event Festival at Prince George’s Community College.  This year the Heritage Film Festival encourages attendees to bring nonperishables to the event. Collected food will be donated to a local food pantry, The Pregnancy Aid Center.  “Our film festival encourages community involvement. It is run by volunteers, and this year we want to give back to the community. We are asking attendees to bring nonperishable foods to each event. You can help your neighbors and see great films at the same time! We even have a Saturday afternoon program of student films (April 9, 2011at 2pm).”

The Heritage Film Festival is Free and open to the general public. The Festival is in Rennie Forum in Prince George’s Community College, 301 Largo Rd., Largo, Maryland  20774.
