Community Stories Film Festival

COMMUNITY STORIES FILM FESTIVAL is a FREE three-day event featuring filmmakers from DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia.

Since 2010, our annual Community Stories Film Festival has provided a way to highlight the stories of people, places, and events from our local community, across the DMV, and by our local filmmakers. Films come from established artists as well as participants in Docs' filmmaking classes. 

We believe in the power of documentary films to bring communities together and why Community Stories is such a successful home-grown event.

Save the Date:   Community Stories returns March 10-12, 2023. 


Submit your film through Film Free Way. The submission deadline is December 19, 2022
