DC Shorts Film Festival
Washington, D.C. / September 19-28, 2019 / dcshorts.com / S
As illustrated by its motto, “We champion short filmmakers,” DC is all about supporting the art of shorts. In 2018, 130 films were selected from 1,508 submissions from directors from 30 countries. There were nine world premieres and seven North American premieres. Last year’s highlights included four films nominated for Academy Awards. Competition showcases feature Q&As, and social events encourage intersections between filmmakers and industry folk. Films are screened multiple times during the 10-day festival for maximum exposure. Workshops focus on hands-on filmmaking.
