festival. Joe Carnahan said, “I’m happy to be involved with the Maryland International Film FestivalHagerstown. It is a terrific

opportunity to assist in the growth of the independent film industry. I enjoy giving back to the community and lending my expertise to a great cause.”

Joe Carnahan has worked with some of the hottest celebrities in Hollywood over the past several years. Actors including Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, and Ray Liotta to name a few. He is one of the most prolific filmmakers in Hollywood today that spans both film and television. He has written and directed one of the hottest shows on TV today, “The Blacklist” and has another series coming to the small screen soon.

Inspired by actual events, this Docudrama follows the community and the congregation of Egypt Valley Church as they try to overcome the Seven Deadly Words: ‘We’ve never done it that way before.’ The church is out of funds and out of touch with the community. New pastor Evan Bennett sets out to change things for the better with the help of some folks in and out of the church.But there’s a problem… The Haman Family has been running things a long time, and they don’t like change. When their control and ministry comes under scrutiny, the Hamans decide to fight back. Evan and his family soon learn how far one family is willing to go to preserve the Status quo. -

A feature length coming of age story about high school love, punk rock, and hemorrhoids.

Today, top management has gathered at headquarters to await an offer of acquisition that will make them each rich beyond their dreams–and divorce Henry once and for all from the business his grandfather started 80 years earlier. The day starts badly when Walt Ford is found hanging from a noose in the boardroom. When management elects to ignore the suicide until their deal has closed, the decision sends the entire office into a death spiral of finger pointing, deal-making, prophetic PowerPoint presentations and gruesome murders. Those left alive must work together to find a killer before the killer finds them.
