Let me introduce you a lil bit to who I am before I get into what this blog is all about.
My name is Kristin, and I moved from Baltimore to the Delmarva area officially in June 2017. My partner BL is from here, so I’ve been spending my breaks from school with him in Ocean City for about three years. We both love this rural, bustling, secretly-really-weird tourist trap of a peninsula, so post-graduation we decided to move here with only our dreams and our chihuahua-Brussels Griffon puppy mix in tow (and some other stuff).
My recently-acquired degree is in journalism, so I’m here to write about things that are happening in my new town. BL and I founded the Ocean City Film Festival just a few months ago, and it’s something that we hope will continue for years and years to come. But still, OCFF only happens once a year, and other artistic happenings in the area continue on – even if they are mostly underground.
This site isn’t just about the film festival, or even Delmarva film in general – it’s about local music, exhibits, artists and anything weird that happens that has anything to do with art and creation. The Eastern Shore isn’t known for its flourishing art scene, but as art-makers and art-lovers, that’s something that we want to change. Through the festival, we’ve met so many talented, passionate locals, and it thrills me to know that there’s a community for art here (I am very, very excited to be a part of it).
So, anyway, yeah! Welcome! If you want to help us water the beautiful blossom that is the artistic community of Delmarva (this blog might be really corny, too, if its title didn’t give that away), send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send me tips on things that are happening, cool artists to profile, or if you want to write a story of your own, that’s totally cool, too. I can’t wait to see this tiny blossom grow into a sturdy, 10-foot sunflower! Have a filmarvelous day.
