The Baltimore Museum of Art has collaborated with The 48 Hour Film Project to present FREE screenings of short movies by a group of filmmakers inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s chilling tales and the BMA’s exhibition, Edgar Allan Poe: A Baltimore Icon. Different screenings will be held Friday, December 4 and Friday, December 11 in the BMA’s Meyerhoff Auditorium at 8 p.m.; the exhibition gallery opens at 6 p.m.

Among the participating filmmakers is Karen Yasinsky, a finalist for the Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize in 2007 and 2009. Yasinsky teaches Film and Media Studies at Johns Hopkins University. She is a founding board member of the Gunk Foundation, a private foundation for public art. Her films and drawings have been shown at MoMA, NY; Mori Art Musuem, Tokyo; and UCLA Hammer Museum, L.A.; as well as at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the New York Underground Film Festival.
