2014 marks the 10th anniversary of Docs In Progress' very first work-in-progress screening program. As we count down the weeks to our big commemorative event on May 20, our board members are already starting to celebrate by hosting a series of houseparties with some very special guests.
These "Decade of Docs FUNdraisers" are built around different themes and will give guests the opportunity to mix and mingle, enjoy some good drinks and nosh, and meet special guests who reflect just a slice of what makes the DC documentary film community incredible.
