  • DC Independent Film Festival:  Tired of procrastinating with big names with top actors and actresses?  Looking for something “the cool kids” would watch?  Head on out to the 18th year of this remarkable festival and check out films from all over the US and the world, many of which will premiere FOR THE FIRST TIME!  How cool is that?!  Watch some epic films and learn from filmmakers through various seminars and masterclasses.  Hone your movie skills while honing your being all cultural.  Shows run through the 13th of March all around the District.  Learn more here:  http://dciff-indie.org/
