Call for Filmmakers - DEADLINE :  
On Screen/In Person


On Screen/In Person tours new independent American films and their respective filmmakers to communities across the mid-Atlantic region.  Six films and their creators are selected for touring annually. Each tour engagement includes a public screening, a pre- or post-screening discussion with the visiting filmmaker, and a community activity with the filmmaker that provides greater appreciation for their work and the art of film.  Organizations in Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia, and West Virginia interested in serving as host sites for tours are selected by the Foundation through an open, competitive application process. The program is open to filmmakers from across the United States through a nationwide call for entries.  Animation, documentary, experimental and narrative works are eligible for consideration. Organizations accepted as host sites participate in the film selection process.

On Screen/In Person is a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation’s (“MAAF”) On Screen/In Person program provides opportunities for independent filmmakers to tour throughout the mid-Atlantic region with their recent films and foster greater understanding and appreciation of their work through direct audience engagement.
