Hagerstown Plays Host To Film Festival
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A new film festival is bringing some Hollywood stars to Hagerstown.
Actors Stephen Lang and Robin Givens are among the celebrities expected at the Maryland International Film Festival beginning Thursday. The event runs through Sunday.
Lang is the star of “Gods and Generals,” a 2003 Civil War drama scheduled for a “director’s cut” screening on Friday. Lang also starred in “Avatar.” He is currently featured on the Fox television series, “Terra Nova.”
Givens is doing an acting workshop during the festival with high-school students from the local Barbara Ingram School for the Arts.
Opening night events include a screening of the new feature film, “White Knight.” The film is about a Texas Ku Klux Klansman whose racist views are challenged at a prison work farm.
