The seventh annual Maryland International Film Festival, Hagerstown (MDIFF-H) kicks off on April 27, 2018 and runs through April 29, 2018. During the festival, Horizon Goodwill will be hosting the film For Once in My Life. Executive Director, Tracie Hovey, said, "We are looking forward to a fantastic festival this year!

It is very moving and beautifully made."

The screening of the film will be Saturday April 28th at the Grand Piano Ballroom at 6:40pm. The cost of the film is $10. For Once in My Life features the spirit of a Goodwill band, the unique assembly of singers and musicians who live with varying degrees of physical and mental disability banding together. The 29 members of the band work together during the day at the Goodwill Industries of South Florida. That is also the home of their practice venue. As their music becomes tighter and more harmonious, so too do their lives- a testament to the healing and empowering power of music, participation, cooperation, and friendship.

Last year MDIFF-H was the recipient of Movie Maker Magazine's top 50 Film Festivals Worth Their Entry Fee in 2017. The festival had celebrities like Golden Globe winner, Kamala Lopez, with her film Equal Means Equal, Kerry Cahill and Ann Mahoney from The Walking Dead, Director Joe Carnahan, and Director Eduardo Sanchez.
