The Washington, DC International Film Festival (Filmfest DC) returns to the nation’s capital for the last time April 17-27 2014, celebrating nearly three decades of bringing award-winning movies to Washington, D.C. theatergoers.

Among its extensive program of over 80 features, documentaries, comedies, shorts, award winners and discoveries, the District’s premiere film festival will highlight audience favorite series, Trust No One: Espionage and Thrillers, The Lighter Side and Justice Matters. Feast Your Eyes will be a special series of full-length features whose fun, inventive and original stories all revolve around the theme of food.

Landmark Bethesda Row Cinema has been added as a festival venue this year.

Now in its 28th and final year, Filmfest DC is back to celebrate nearly three decades of bringing thousands of entertaining and thought-provoking films to Washington and to thank the hundreds of thousands of D.C. film fanatics and volunteers who have attended the festival over the years.

Cash awards will be given in the Justice Matters and First Feature sections.

Competition films, as well as a complete list of films, special guests and events will be announced at a later date.
