Washington, DC Independent Film Festival


Recommended Posts

One of the premiere festivals for indie films on the Atlantic Coast, DCIFF runs 11 days, exhibits over 100 films (features, shorts, animations, documentaries, student) from around the world, and features 30 themed film showcases (Political, Cine Latino, Jewish, International, Black, European, etc). The film festival also includes 7 days of leading industry expert panels, Master classes, and the International, National Advocacy, as well as industry breakfasts, VIP receptions, happy hours, opening and closing night galas. Additionally, we are supporting carbon-neutral filmmaking by going "green" to reduce carbon dioxide emissions during festival operations, and provding a special exhibit.


DCIFF is an award-winning annual festival that provides a truly unique experience where the public can come and immerse themselves in independent film culture in our nation’s capital.


Directions: UDC 4200 Connecticut Avenue – Auditorium 46 (Metro: Van Ness – UDC)


The festival will be held at the temporary site of the new DC Moving Image Center (DC MIC) of District of Columbia (currently at the University of the District of Columbia). The DC MIC will be the new landmark for independent film, where audiences can experience a festival, seminars, tradeshows, film markets, Music festival and receptions – ALL IN ONE LOCATION.



Here is a the March film calendar.
