Cabin Fever Film Festival

The Chesapeake Film Festival and the Talbot County Free Library are co-sponsoring the Cabin Fever Film Festival starting in December 2020. When you’re stuck at home due to the pandemic and you have the winter blahs, take a break and enjoy a rare cinematic gem and Zoom discussion afterward.
All films are free and can be found on YouTube. You can watch the film whenever is convenient and then join us in a Zoom discussion about the movie.

There, he meets a single mother with three children who becomes his muse, inspiring him to rejuvenate his life and his work.
