What we're about

The DC Filmmakers group is a community of people passionate about the moving image (film, video, television, web broadcast/streaming, ... ). We look at digital production and film production as two side of the same coin. The group is a resource to network, make films, learn, teach, screen films, discuss business aspects of the industry, and to make friends. Our members include Producers, Directors, Cinematographers, Writers, Editors, Actors, Audio Engineers, Lighting Gaffers, Grips, Audio Designers, Digital Artists, and Entertainment Lawyers.
