Our Mission

We are dedicated to cultivating a distinctive film and digital media industry in Prince George’s County, Maryland. We accomplish this by honoring the art of filmmaking and by positioning Digital Media Communications and the Creative Economy as transformational forces for economic progress and social well being.

Our Practice

We emphasize strategic partnerships and combine advocacy, creative place-making and arts incubation services for film and digital media professionals and creative entrepreneurs.

Our artistic collaboration reinforces a narrative of creativity, innovation and positive community impact.

Our Programs

Creative Edge Collaborative programming include:

Innovation Studio (iStudio) is our platform for developing new avenues for local talent to create, market and distribute their film and digital media works, both locally and beyond. We organize industry workshops and operate a Business Accelerator for media professionals and creative businesses.

Cultural Exchange Independent Film Series is our monthly conversation with the public on social impact themes. We partner with the Hyattsville Public Library to exhibit independent films and encourage community conversations.

Future of Film Conference is our annual, day-long signature event that brings together the regional film industry to consider the current state of the industry and to look at emerging trends. This event is hosted at Library Media Services, UMD each Fall and is a product of  our affiliation with University Libraries.
