2013 DC Shorts Film Festival
Ten Spanish productions are featured in the largest short film event on the East Coast.
In its 10th year, the DC Shorts Film Festival is returning to the D.C. area this September with eleven days of short films from around the world. Six theatres from across the DC area – from Rockville to Fairfax and Anacostia to downtown D.C. will be hosting the festival this year. This is the first major film event to take place in Anacostia in recent memory.
This year, the festival will be showing 153 films from 23 countries. The films run the gamut in genre, style and subject, but are unified by their abbreviated run times: 1-20 minutes or less. These mini-flicks will be grouped together into 16 unique 90-minute showcases shown throughout the festival. The showcases range in content with something for everyone, including dramas, comedies, animation, sci-fi, documentaries and experimental films.
