Join the DC Film Society

(valid to December 31, 2022).

The DC Film Society works with local ad agencies to acquire passes for preview screenings of films that occur before the films are released to the general public. We are predominantly invited to "word of mouth" screenings of independent and foreign language films with small marketing budgets to help spread the word about them, and occasionally to press screenings of other more well-known films to be an enthusiastic audience. We notify members of screenings via our email list-serve and our website.

Other membership benefits include:

  • Ticket discounts for FilmfestDC in April (the only discounts offered during the annual festival).
  • Storyboard, the monthly Film Society newsletter - keep up to date on Film Society, Filmfest DC and other local film events.
  • Discounted admission for our annual AND THE WINNER IS... Oscar party and the Summer (May) and Winter (November) "COMING ATTRACTIONS Trailer Night".
  • Other discounted admissions for local film and theatre events.
Check the Screenings and Events page for what's ahead.
