In 2019, to recognize and highlight the outstanding film work being developed in the greater Baltimore community by local creators, the Maryland Film Festival decided to create a distinct festival shorts block called BaltiShorts. This program has consistently been a huge audience favorite, and 2022 was true to form. From heart wrenching narratives to kooky animation, culturally relevant docs and slices of life, this program has something for everyone, in true Baltimore fashion.

MDFF 2022 BaltiShorts was originally programmed by Eric Cotten,  with assistance from KJ Mohr, and Garrett Stralnic.
