The Show Will Go On: Today's light dusting of snow will not affect the shows tonight. But since we all know how traffic gets in inclement weather, please plan accordingly. The screenings will begin promptly on time, and latecomers will be seated between films.

Everyone loves the “Best of DC Shorts” — one reason this event sells out year after year! So, we decided to expand the night to an entire weekend — and move to DC’s up-and-coming exciting neighborhood — the H Street/Atlas District.
