Washington D.C.’s longest running film festival is back this year after announcing plans to shut down in 2015. Revived by viewer donations and staffers taking pay cuts to keep the much loved event going, this year’s films are presented as “leaner and meaner” with fewer venues and fewer star appearances. The festival, which features international, independent films at District cinemas, has a stacked lineup for the 30th anniversary, including The Dressmaker, starring Academy Award-winner Kate Winslet, and My Internship in Canada, a buzzing new political satire.
April 14th-24th, 2016
