In our latest podcast, we revisit a May 2017 article about the Maryland Film Festival (MFF) and reopening of the Parkway Theatre entitled "Cinema Paradiso." Baltimore editor-in-chief Max Weiss interviews MFF director Jed Dietz and local filmmaker Matt Porterfield about what to expect at this year's festival, how to properly capture Baltimore on the big screen, and the best advice John Waters ever gave them.
