Ruby Project “The Real Wi-Fi of Baltimore” will screen at Cinequest and Slamdance


Featuring the genre-busting talent of James Nasty and TT the Artist, The Real Wi-Fi Of Baltimore offers a punny and nuanced view of Baltimore neighborhoods in a short film edited from iPhone screenshots of Wi-Fi network names. The Real Wi-Fi Of Baltimore poses this challenge: Are we connected?

After receiving a Ruby Grant in 2016, Julia Kim Smith has been able to complete her digital video, The Real Wi-Fi of Baltimore, creating a unique understanding of the city through the names of a number of its actual wi-fi networks. Smith is now achieving success in screening the video, with upcoming dates at Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, UT and Conquest Film Festival, Jan Jose, CA.

Screening information and dates are listed below. We are so proud of Smith’s achievements and that she is putting Baltimore on the national cinematic map.
