There are more than 120 films at this year's Maryland Film Festival, running Thursday through Sunday. We want to see them all. Sadly, there's other things we have to do -- eat, sleep and (ugh) work. We assume you're in the same predicament. So we've selected 15 films this year that excite us -- from fresh indie-comedies to experimental art flicks to provocative documentaries (with most presented by the films' directors and stars). Be sure to see at least a few of these. You'll be instantly transformed into a smarty-pants cinephile. That's a good thing, by the way.
