Bridges to the World

The Bridges to the World International Film Festival is a celebration of Maryland’s global reach and a reflection of those connections in the state.  It is coordinated by World Artists Experiences and Maryland’s Office of the Secretary of State International Division.   This year’s festival highlights films from: Thailand, Peru, Sweden, China, and Kenya.  The films are selected and sponsored by the embassy of each country and are screened in five distinct regions of Maryland:  Annapolis, California, Cumberland, Salisbury, and Towson.  And new this year, also in Reading, PA.  Each film is introduced and is followed by a discussion.     

The Towson screenings are held on Fridays at 7:00PM in Van Bokkelen Hall Auditorium (VB 204) on the Towson University campus.  Admission is free.
