Join members of the cast and crew for a red carpet screening of a horror classic. There will also be an opportunity to purchase tickets to a VIP reception. Although not the first Found Footage film, “The Blair Witch Project” is often credited with creating the Found Footage sub-genre of Horror Films and paving the way for Found Footage films to come. The film is set in Burkittsville, Maryland in western Frederick County. Come out and celebrate the 20th anniversary with a screening and Q & A close to where the film is set and to where much of the film was made.
Sponsored by the Maryland Department of Commerce.
