Coming this February and March to Western Maryland, a free documentary film series from AppIndie: 4 great films, 8 guest panelists, free door prizes and a community arts project!

As part of AppIndie's year-long 'One Vision / Many Voices' project (funded by the Maryland Humanities Council) AppIndie will be hosting a free documentary film series focused around the question: 'How do we embrace what we value in our community while moving towards a healthier, more sustainable futre?'. 

The film series will feature ample time for discussion with local panelists and community members as well as an opportunity to have your voice heard through AppIndie's community arts project! The films will be screened at Allegany College of Maryland and Frostburg State University during the months of February and March 2013.

Feel free to share with friends and we hope to see you out there!

Camera in hand, Mike Snyder traveled throughout Western Maryland and into West Virginia last summer to document metal work, quilting, musical traditions and homesteading practices associated with the region's mountain heritage. He also filmed whitewater kayaking, to spice the mix with a modernist twist.
