SNF Parkway Theatre Invites Baltimore
Area Filmmakers to Participate in
“Artscape at the Parkway”

 

Calling all Baltimore Film and Media Makers!

We are thrilled to announce an opportunity for local film and media artists to showcase their work at the SNF Parkway Theatre during Baltimore Artscape 2024.

Artscape at the Parkway

Throughout August, we will project a curated selection of scenes, excerpts, and images from selected films onto our prominent street-facing windows. This installation will be part of a weekend of screenings and events at the SNF Parkway Theatre during Artscape​​​​. Stay tuned for more details about Artscape weekend to be announced soon!

We invite film and media makers from the Baltimore area to submit their short films and imagery for consideration. We welcome works in a wide variety of formats including narrative, documentary, experimental, animated short films, video art pieces, select scenes from larger works, and other forms of visual imagery. This is a great opportunity for local artists to have work seen by a diverse audience at one of Baltimore’s most celebrated events.

Our Commitment to Baltimore Filmmakers

This initiative reflects our ongoing commitment to supporting Baltimore filmmakers by providing opportunities for professional development, networking, and screenings. The SNF Parkway is evolving in response to dialogue with our community over the past year. With film as our core, we will expand our offerings to include live arts, education, and new media programming.

    • Be visually compelling

Announcing a Renewed Vision

 

On May 28, 2024, we hosted an event attended by hundreds of community members, where we unveiled a new vision for the SNF Parkway Theatre.

Board Chair Scot Spencer and Vice Chair Camille Blake Fall shared exciting changes planned for our theatre. These enhancements aim to make the venue more accessible and vibrant for everyone—artists, audiences, and community partners alike.
