Filmfest DC is Back!

65 films • 35 countries • 11 days • 1 amazing film festival

Welcome to the Washington, DC International Film Festival.

While everyone likes to go to the movies, recently it hasn't been easy. That's why after so many obstacles kept us at a distance, we are excited to finally open our doors to welcome you back to Washington's largest and longest running film festival. This year's festival will be hybrid with screenings in movie theaters and streaming online. We are joining our city, especially downtown, as it recovers from the pandemic and moves forward into better times. Filmfest DC hopes to help revitalize Washington's cultural vitality by bringing the best in new world cinema to residents and visitors. Premieres, comedies, thrillers, dramas, social justice documentaries, and new films by Washington filmmakers will transport you. We invite you to take your seats for eleven days of delight, enlightenment, and fun. Filmfest DC is back!
