DC Independent Film Festival coming soon
The Washington, D.C., Independent Film Festival is an award-winning event that showcases more than 100 feature, short, animation and documentary films by local, national and international filmmakers. After each session there is a question-and-answer discussion where top executives from AOL, Discovery Communications, National Geographic and PBS talk answer questions. It also runs in tandem with the entertainment each night. From hip-hop, to an open mike night, to gospel, to the closing night performance by Gibraltar, a North African Band from Algeria and Morocco, performances vary. The festival starts on Feb. 29 and runs until March 4 at the Navy Memorial Heritage Center at 701 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W. Tickets to film sessions are $10, and seminars are $25 per seminar.
