DC SHORTS

FILM FESTIVAL &
SCREENPLAY COMPETITION

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.

FILM SPOTLIGHT: Doc in a Day: City Dogs Rescue

City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties rescues adoptable cats and dogs in overcrowded and high-kill shelters, where resources are severely limited. We offer a lifeline to as many of these wonderful animals as possible. Sadly, many of the cats and dogs that City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties takes are just days — and sometimes hours — away from being euthanized for no reason other than lack of space. By finding these animals permanent and loving homes in the DC metropolitan area, we can enrich lives of humans and their pets. We welcome your help in any capacity, through volunteering, fostering, adopting, sponsoring and/or donating.
