Welcome to the Washington, DC Film Society.

The Washington, DC Film Society, founded in 1991, is a group of enthusiastic film lovers who enjoy quality mainstream, international, and independent films. Our members live in the D.C. Metropolitan area and come from a variety of backgrounds, ages and ethnicity's. Our Coordinating Committee, similarly, is comprised of individuals drawn from varying backgrounds. Our common interest is the love of film.

Our monthly newsletter, Storyboard, informs members of upcoming events, which include both our own screenings and fundraising events, and those of other area groups. Also, we are able to quickly reach a large portion of our membership if a last-minute event is scheduled via our E-Mail List. We are a non-profit self-supporting organization with proceeds from our membership fees and fundraising events donated to our parent organization, FilmFest DC, the Washington, DC International Film Festival, now celebrating its 11th anniversary.

The Washington, DC Film Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to an appreciation of quality mainstream, international and independent films. Members enjoy free sneak preview screenings and discounted admission to several fundraising events, including an annual "AND THE WINNER IS..." party. All proceeds from membership and revenues from fundraising activities support the work of the Film Society and its parent organization, FilmFest DC, the Washington, DC International Film Festival.

The Film Society's mission is to provide the Washington, DC community the same opportunities to enjoy international and independent films and to participate in meaningful discussion of the culture of film that are part of FilmFest DC. We also actively support local, independent film: Film Society membership includes special privileges with the Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers DC Member Salon (AIVF-DC), and likewise, AIVF-DC members share membership benefits with the Film Society. We disseminate information about local and national film organizations' activities of interest to our membership. The Film Society was created in 1991 by enthusiastic FilmFest DC staff and volunteers.
