The 13th Annual Heritage Film Festival (May 17, 19, 20 of 2018) is a community based, volunteer driven, free event that brings together short films of all genre from novice and seasoned filmmakers, to celebrate independent media. Screenings on 17 and 19 May are in the Greenbelt Library. Saturday afternoon is the Festival's popular Student Film Festival and Student Awards Ceremony. Sunday evening (20 May) is at the Old Greenbelt Theatre. Sunday will include a tribute to Ethel Lewis of PGAHC and George Kochell (Mister Geo), two cultural workers who have served the Prince George's County art community for over 20 years. Admission to all events is free. We encourage audience members to bring non-perishable food items for donation to a local food pantry.

Outstanding student filmmakers receive awards and recognition for their work. Filmmakers must be present to win.
