The DC Shorts Film Festival and Screenplay Competition is the largest short film event on the East Coast. Last year, we screened 135 films from 25 countries in 18 unique showcases over 11 days to audiences of more than 9,000 people.
The festival has been named as the “Coolest Short Film Festival” by MovieMaker Magazine, and is a three-time winner of the Washington City Paper’s “Coolest Short Film Festival” contest/award.
The 10-day event (September 9–17, 2017) will include film screenings, Q&As, filmmaker workshops and parties in locations throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area, as well as online, through the DC Shorts Online Film Festival
