Annapolis Film Festival


The theme for the 2022 Annapolis Film Festival is THE BIG PICTURE, as they celebrate the festival's 10th Anniversary.

The Shorts Challenge will also be using the same theme of finding meaningful purpose in exploring past scenarios/relationships/histories to discover how the present and future is impacted.

The Annapolis Film Festival encourages you to tell your story through that lens, hoping to find “the big picture” in the end.
