Local film fanatics and casual movie-goers annually crowd the street as they wait to get into the Charles Theatre during the area's largest film fest. The event offers an opportunity to see shorts, documentaries, foreign dramas, indie comedies and more. Here's a sneak peek at some of this year's featured films.

One tradition of the Maryland Film Festival is to present a different vintage 3-D film every year, and this year's 1953 musical will once again continue the custom. The Baltimore Sun's Chris Kaltenbach will introduce this screening. He has been introducing 3-D films at the festival for more than 10 years.
Screens May 5, 11 a.m., Charles Theatre 1
