Annapolis Film Festival Director and Co-founder Patti White hopes to get people talking.

"They meet at the films, the meet in the lobby, they meet in the lines, they meet in the parties and they discuss and share these conversations they are having about all these great films," she said. "It just elevates the community and that's what we are hoping to do and that's what we've been doing."
