DC Shorts Festival Continues with Best of the Fest

From comedy, to drama, sci-fi to experimental film, it won't be hard to find something for each individual taste. And, if the film isn't speaking to you, it will be over, shortly.

Events include plenty of opportunities to eat, drink and mix and mingle with the film makers and other film lovers. Earlier highlights of the festival paired films with a chef, who created a dish related to one of the films. The Live Screenplay Competition is followed by a reception where the audience can chat with the screenplay writers, and congratulate the winner!

Next year will mark the 10th Anniversary of DC Shorts and promises to offer up more films, more food and lots more fun for those who love movies, people and a chance to check out a genre that rarely gets to be the feature show, not just the opener for a feature-length film.

Tickets for films can be purchased by showcase at DCShorts.com, as well as ticketed events like the Live Screenplay Competition and the Closing Party, both being held at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Northeast. During the festival, an online selection of films can be viewed, with tickets also available for purchase through the festival website.
