FilmFest DC - MetroShorts program

For over 30 years, Filmfest DC has sought to keep pace with global cultural and social activities. Today we find ourselves in a conundrum of opposing beliefs and shifting governmental policies, which have often divided citizens and forged a culture of "us vs. them." As a reflection of our times, this year's festival has taken on a special focus on issues ripped from today's headlines in hopes of increasing clarity and civil discourse.

Exact screening time and location information to come.
