Night of Hollywood




The Frederick Film Office is proud to announce a gala fundraising event to benefit several local charities in the Frederick area. Titled “A Night Of Hollywood”, this event will take place at the Weinberg Center for the Arts on Saturday, December 1st  from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Doors will open to the public at 6:00 p.m.

“A Night Of Hollywood” will be a unique event to the Frederick community. Not to be missed is the WORLD PREMIERE of the feature film “Elf-Man”. Filmed entirely in Frederick County, Maryland, “Elf-Man” is a family-friendly Christmas comedy produced by local production company Wiseacre Films, and is distributed by Anchor Bay Entertainment.

In addition, several “Elf-Man” stars will be in attendance at this gala event:  Wee Man (Jackass), Mackenzie Astin, (Iron Will, The Facts of Life), and Mirelly Taylor (Lost), along with director Ethan Wiley and producer Richard Jefferies, a Frederick, MD native.

Attendees will be able to “Meet The Local Cast” at one of the several interactive exhibits located in the lobby. Guests will also have the chance to enjoy their own “Red Carpet Photo” moment, learn about local and regional film festivals, and win a private “Meet and Greet” experience with the stars of the film. Every guest will also receive a limited edition mini-poster and a gift bag. A raffle for various movie themed prizes will take place, and five lucky general admission ticket holders will win a chance to meet the stars. A cash bar and movie concessions will be available for purchase.

Tickets for adults are $30.00 and $20.00 for children 12 and under. Tickets will be available through MDtix.com, and will go on sale Wednesday, October 10th, 2012 at 9:00 am.
