About the Our Town Project
Our Town - Rockville

Maryland Public Television's "Our Town" tells the story of towns and cities across Maryland. The first three installments profiled Chestertown, Hagerstown and Cumberland. The program illustrates what makes the community a special place to live and work through original film footage and commentary from area residents. The program features local landmarks and points of interest, with residents telling what they like about living and working in the community.

Watch the "Our Town--Cumberland" trailer, or view the full-length documentary.

Work on the Rockville program began in September 2014. MPT hosted a story conference with community members before filming begins. The results of the story conference define the content of the program. MPT provides handheld cameras to residents to gather video footage for the film. The production will collect video through May 2015. The documentary will air on MPT beginning in September 2015.
