The 12th annual Heritage Film Festival 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. The 2017 Heritage Film Festival is in May, in the Oxon Hill Library in Prince George's County, Maryland. This year's Festival includes 2 screening dates during the week and a Saturday morning family-friendly animation program followed by the Festival's popular Student Film Festival and Student Awards Ceremony. Admission to all events is free. We encourage audience members to bring non-perishable food items for donation to a local food pantry.
