Community Stories Festival



Official Poster for Community Stories Film Festival 2022, March 11 to 13, 2022

Docs In Progress' next Community Stories Film Festival will be held virtually with live Q&A sessions on March 11-13, 2022. All films will be available to watch starting Tuesday, March 8, 2022 at 5pm on our virtual festival platform Eventive.


Community Stories Film Festival focuses on local filmmakers who tell contemporary and historical documentaries about the people, places and events of Maryland, Washington DC and Northern Virginia.

What began in 2010 as a one night showcase of Docs In Progress student work, has grown to become a weekend series of public screenings of films by everyone from professional filmmakers to first-time adult and youth filmmakers, sharing stories from our local community. Each year, more than 500 people engage with filmmakers, those who have been filmed, and scholars at screenings, discussions and community workshops. 

We hope to see you there!
