Our Story

We have a core belief that story can change the world and we've built a film festival around it.

We hold in highest regard and look forward to spotlighting films that provoke us to dream and question what we know to be true. Films that inspire us to see the potential of what could be and that ultimately paint a unique picture of the raw human condition.

A Passionate Team

A Diverse Location

Welcome to our Nation's Capital

Washington D.C.

A powerful city with a dynamic and diverse population. Monuments, memorials, and museums make Washington D.C. an iconic destination, one which will be complimented by the presence of our new and evolutive film festival.

Beautiful Northern Virginia

Reston and the Greater DC Region

Bowtie Cinemas at Reston Town Center and the Angelika Mosaic Film Center & Cafe in Fairfax serve as two of our elegant and reputable screening venues, facilitating for our filmmakers and audiences a memorable movie-going experience.

Wine Country

Distinctive Wines, Distinctive Movies

In a barrel room or under the stars, enjoy an intimate screening at one of the award-winning wineries in Northern Virginia. What better way to celebrate story than with a cozy night of compelling film, noble wine, and an audience of storytellers.
