Events at 14th & V

​Humanitini:​ Filmmaking in DC
14th & V | Langston Room | March 8, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

From the Capitol dome and the monuments to the majestic architecture throughout our community, Washington, DC has served as a backdrop for both small and big screens. Join HumanitiesDC (HDC) in a vibrant look at the beauty of our community via film and video but also the red tape and challenges faced by producers and filmmakers to capture those images and create stories here. Join HumanitiesDC and Double R Productions at this Humanitini for a lively discussion to talk how we deal with those barriers and how our creative films/video reflect DC’s culture.
