DC Film Alliance: a local filmmaker's best resource

DC Film Alliance: a local filmmaker's best resource

The DC Film Alliance is quite possibly the single best organization for filmmakers and cinephiles in the Nation's Capital. Founded by Jon Gann, who is also the man behind the highly successful DC Shorts Film Festival, the DC Film Alliance offers seminars on filmmaking through the DC Film Salon. Information on topics such as screenwriting, film promotion, and fundraising is presented by knowledgeable people in the field. The laid back Film Salons also offer an opportunity to meet other film enthusiasts and develop connections to potential collaborators.

Customers are invited to visit their local Pretzelmaker, sing a snippet from a song of their choice and receive a FREE soft pretzel (standard salted or unsalted) while supplies last.
