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.   2019 is our 11th Season and highlights films from: Lithuania, Israel, Mongolia, Mozambique, and Canada.  The films are selected and sponsored by the embassy of each country and are screened in six distinct regions of Maryland:  Annapolis, Bowie, California, Cumberland, Salisbury, and Towson.   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.
