    Today through Sunday (3/21-3/24) -7th Annual Annapolis Film Festival. Every year it seems to get bigger and bigger. This year it features 70+ films on a variety of subjects. One, in particular, that caught my eye was “General Magic”, a film about the Silicon Valley company that developed many of the precursors to the technology we use every day. Without the work of General Magic, we may not have the smartphones we all enjoy today. That’s playing at St Johns’ Key Auditorium on Saturday, but check out all the other great films including "The Public", the film starring Emilio Estevez, Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater about rebellious librarians turning the Cincinnati Public Library into an impromptu homeless shelter during one of the most brutal cold snaps in Cincinnati history as well as "Villains", a dark comedy starring Kyra Sedgwick, Jeffrey Donovan and Bill Skarsgard.
