AFI Docs (formally SilverDocs) has grown beyond Silver Spring and is now holding screenings throughout downtown D.C. Film festival spokesmen say the move is an effort to expand the event’s prominence and prestige on the documentary circuit. They’ve even cut ties with Discovery Communications and picked up a new headlining sponsor- Audi.
Some films will still be shown at the AFI Silver Theater but doc fans can now catch screenings at other venues such as the Newsuem. Hopefully these changes will allow more people to enjoy the festival as it gets grows into one of the most major non-fiction film festivals on the East Coast.
Tickets are on sale now and you can view all the films HERE. Be sure to check back soon for our list of MUST SEE DOCS for this year!
