JHU Film Society Presents: The 19th Annual Johns Hopkins Film Festival
The Johns Hopkins Film Festival is an annual film festival sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Film Society, held in Shriver Hall of the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. The festival highlights excellent films from independent, international, and student filmmakers, seeking to promote the films and careers of visionary filmmakers via a highly selective showcase of ~20 films. Additionally, the festival showcases feature presentations of important, influential films on 35MM prints, which have previously spanned the classifications of art house, classics, cult classics, children's films, and more.
The feature presentations this year will include Vincent Gallo’s original and disarming triple crown of indie filmmaking, "Buffalo '66" (1998), at the Charles Theater (with a special dinner-and-a-movie deal presented by the festival and Lost City Diner); Arthur Penn’s brilliant milestone in American cinema, "Bonnie and Clyde" (1967); Albert Magnoli’s glorified music video of a cult classic, "Purple Rain" (1984), starring Prince; and Edward Sedgwick’s silent classic "The Cameraman" (1928), starring Buster Keaton. This is a rare opportunity to watch these films projected on 35MM on the third-largest screen in Maryland.
In addition to these feature presentations, we have our best submissions showcase yet; there will be several shorts programs and features that include films originating from local filmmakers in Baltimore to filmmakers across the globe, including Austria and Korea. The lineup for this year’s fest is impressive, with some films already boasting several notable festival appearances, including SXSW and CPH:DOX premieres.
Admission to the festival is free for Johns Hopkins students and affiliates with an ID (excluding the "Buffalo ’66" screening at the Charles). For the public, screening passes are $5, day passes are $10, and festival passes are $20. Tickets are available at any show.
