Since 1981, the mission of the Black Maria Film Festival has been to promote, illuminate, and advocate innovation in the art of the moving image. The festival has passionately embraced this mission for the past thirty-five years, and is named after the world's first motion picture studio built by Thomas Edison, where he made all of his own short experimental films. Moviemaker's Spring 2010 issue lists the Black Maria Film Festival as one of "25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee."
