The next Docs in Progress will take place one week from tonight on
Tuesday, July 12. Fellow filmmakers and the general public are
invited to join in the discussion about three short documentaries and
help the filmmakers take their films to the next stage of editing.
Be a part of this interactive session which has become a mainstay of
the DC film community.
We will be showcasing:

multicultural community facing gentrification.

A 20-something politician takes on the political establishment by
