FILM FESTIVAL &
SCREENPLAY COMPETITION

SEPTEMBER 8–18, 2016

The 2016 DC Shorts Film Festival showcases one of the largest collection of short films in the USA. Out of over 1,300 entries from around the globe, our programmers have selected 131 unique films that reflect the 33 nations they represent — and bring a world view to Washington, DC.

Enjoy the festival in person at our venues in Downtown Washington, DC — or sit back and watch over 70 of our selections in the comfort of your home, office — or on the go! But hurry — online access is only available during the festival, and will be turned off at midnight, September 18.
