Cyzyk already has nine best-of programs assembled, programs that he has already presented in Bend, Ore., and Atlanta. These programs grew out of an agreement among regular MicroCineFest attendees who, even though the festival ended in 2006, wanted to continue hanging out with each other every fall. "So we made a pact that each fall we would pick a city and we would all get together in that city and hang out, and last year it was Atlanta," Cyzyk says by phone from his Maryland Film Festival office. "And since we were going there I decided to set up a public best of while we were there. So there was still MicroCineFest last year; it just didn't happen in Baltimore."
