The 15th Annual Heritage Film Festival (May 2020) 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 are in Prince George's County Maryland. The Festival includes our popular Student Film Festival and Student Awards Ceremony, and 2 evenings of general films. 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.

    Thank you very much for your wonderful review! We certainly hope you will continue to share your work with us and that you keep us informed about your projects. Maybe you will even submit a new project developed with another Heritage filmmaker? It's happened before. It was a pleasure having you participate in the Festival and we hope to see you again next year, if not before!

    I was glad to be a part of this year's festival. I was particularly impressed with how the film's were curated. There was broad spectrum of work screened. Also it is good that the festival provides a showcase for up and coming student filmmakers.
