On Screen/In Person tours new independent American films accompanied by their creators to communities across the mid-Atlantic region. Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation is currently accepting applications from arts councils, colleges and universities, community arts centers, film festivals, libraries, media arts centers, museums, performing arts centers, and visual arts spaces interested in serving as host sites for the 2012-2013 tour.
Host sites participate in film selection, screen six films annually over two three-month intervals (September-October-November; February-March-April), and in consultation with the visiting filmmakers develop community activities that provide greater appreciation for the screened work. Click here for a complete listing of current films and tours. Host sites must be based in Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia or West Virginia.
The host site application receipt deadline for On Screen/In Person 2012-2013 is Friday, December 2, 2011. Guidelines and application forms are available here.

For many years the Awards were presented at the Annual Preservation & Revitalization Conference. For 2012 the Maryland Historical Trust is mixing things up a bit and presenting the Awards on January 31, 2012 in Annapolis. They have also revamped the nomination form and the Awards categories to make them simpler and more straightforward.
The change in the presentation date means that the deadline for nominations has also changed. Nominations for 2012 Awards are due October 14, 2011.
