The Ocean City Film Festival takes place during the second weekend of every March
Founded in 2017, the Ocean City Film Festival is a collaboration with the Art League of Ocean City to integrate visual media into the artistic community of Ocean City and surrounding regions. The four-day event provides an invaluable networking opportunity and cultural exchange as filmmakers from all around the region and the world are invited to share their work with each other and the public in a very intimate environment. The Ocean City Film Festival promotes and prioritizes uniqueness and diversity in its annual selection.
