The Ocean City Film Festival was founded in January, 2017. Hosted by the Art League of Ocean City, this festival is a regional affair that allows both community engagement and networking for artists.

Our festival stands to unite artists with their audiences and allow for an intimate and incredibly unique festival experience that can only be found in Ocean City Maryland. Our second year will feature over 100 films from a variety of filmmakers whether they are locals or from the other side of the planet. (And if any extra-terrestrials care to submit, those are allowed too.)

From March 9th-11th an attendee can expect a unique and diverse cinematic experience only to be found at the annual Ocean City Film Festival.

Rules & Terms

The OCFF prioritizes uniqueness and diversity, but we ask that all submissions are conducted professionally.

Filmmakers are entitled to 2 admission passes.

We simply ask that applicants, if selected, maintain steady and clear communication with us so that we can plan our event as efficiently as possible.

    The Art for Social Change team were unable to attend our screening of 'Silent No More - Louise Pentz: A Voice for Social Change' at the inaugural 2017 OCFF but we were so impressed with all of the communication and feedback we received. Bravo, and THANK YOU OCFF!

    It was a nice festival, especially being the first festival. I had a really cool time being the youngest filmmaker in the set of horror flicks shown.
