10th Annual Reel to Real Party

Hundreds of folks involved in Maryland’s film industry gathered at the Lord Baltimore Hotel to honor one of their own – famed production designer Vince Peranio – and raise funds for the Maryland Film Industry Coalition.

Folks enjoyed dinner – and a program that included a heartfelt tribute to Vince from his longtime friend, filmmaker John Waters – followed by a live auction.
Then, folks had a chance to network and mingle with friends and colleagues.
