FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — This year’s Frederick Film Festival is making the most of its Maryland roots. 

Each of four feature films running Saturday was directed by a Maryland native or former resident. Two of the films were shot in Maryland. 

The festival continues Sunday with three documentaries and a feature film called “Meek’s Cutoff.” It’s a western that tells the story of a wagon train’s arduous journey across Oregon’s Cascade Mountains in 1845. 

The festival is at the downtown Weinberg Center for the Arts and the nearby Cultural Arts Center of Frederick. 

It also features more than 40 short films.
