The DC Independent Film Festival, March 3-13

The 12th annual DC Independent Film Festival kicks off this Thursday March 3 and runs through Sunday March 13. Since 1999, the DCIFF has featured a wide selection of independent films with an emphasis on filmmakers based in the District, Maryland, and Virginia.

One local film being showcased this year is Late Rounders, a feature length documentary by area filmmaker Evan A. Marshall. The film follows a group of college football players as they prepare for draft day in the hope that they will be selected by an NFL team. Sports fans and non-sports fans alike should identify with these young men as they wait to see whether or not their dreams will become a reality. Late Rounders plays at the Artisphere in Arlington on March 13. 

DCIFF will also host a number of special guests including TV and radio personality Russ Parr, actor and filmmaker Harry Shearer (The Simpsons, This Is Spinal Tap), and filmmaker Ed Sanchez, co-creator of one of the most successful indie films of all time, The Blair Witch Project.

You can find out more about the DCIFF at their website. For scheduling, venue information, and online tickets, go here

I plan to attend several events at the Festival and chat with some of the filmmakers. Check back here at Where You Live for more.
