Monday kicks off the 6th annual SilverDocs, an international film festival honoring excellence in filmmaking, supporting the diverse voices and free expression of independent storytellers and celebrating the power of documentary to improve our understanding of the world.
Filmmakers from around the world will be showing their films. Held concurrently with the festival is the SilverDocs International Documentary Conference, presenting thought-provoking presentations and engaging a diverse group of over 1,000 filmmakers and industry leaders concerned with the future of non-fiction storytelling, production and distribution.
With a slate of over 100 films, conference sessions and workshops, musical and other live performances, and a special event to honor Director Spike Lee, SilverDocs will, once again, be the premiere film festival event in the Washington, DC area.
If you attend the festival, stop by the press check-in desk in the registration area to say hello. I’ll be there each morning from 8 AM to 10 AM.
