Rob Hatch, Producer of the Baltimore 48-Hour Film Project, in collaboration with the world-renowned Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA), proudly presents “48 Hours of Madness: A Cinematic Celebration of Edgar Allan Poe”, a series of free film screenings on December 4 and 11, 2009, each beginning at 8:00 p.m. at the BMA.

In honor of this year’s bicentennial of Poe’s birth, 17 filmmakers from around the greater Baltimore area selected a Poe character and line and were assigned one of three themes from the BMA’s exhibit, “Edgar Allan Poe: A Baltimore Icon”. This event explores how different filmmakers and filmmaking teams took such themes as Fear and Terror, Love and Loss, and Madness and Obsession and turned them into dark, macabre, humorous and surreal cinematic visions.

Different films will be shown at each screening, and the museum will open at 6:00 p.m. for this special event. For more information, visit or
