About

It's About Building Community, Developing and Exhibiting Filmmakers and their Films!

Friends, last year we successfully launched the first Capitol Hill Film Classic, a new and daring film festival based in Washington, D.C. Now, we are in the throws of planning the 2019 Capitol Hill Film Classic which takes place on 6/13. However, this year we'd love to add a special independent filmmaker's night. We've done the calculations and to do so, we need to pre-sell fifty 2019 Film Classic tickets. Help us create this second night of the festival and help us to prepare and launch our second year through supporting us on kickstarter.


  Last May, we held the first Capitol Hill Film Classic at the historic Miracle Theater in Barracks Row. We had over 100 films submitted from over 40 countries. After the knockout stages, nine films advanced to our live audience of over 200+ film fans to compete for best in show and best in category. 

Help us raise the necessary funds to kickstart the 2019 festival!

This year we hope to turn the Film Classic into a unique short film knockout style competition where local entries compete against the best in the world. All submissions will be divided into four geographical brackets-- American, International, Local DMV and First Time Filmmakers -- which will compete for twelve slots through knockout stages, with the final films being screened in front of a live audience at the historic Miracle Theater. Crowning one short as the Best in Competition

The Best in Shorts Competition is unique in the industry. A festival attracting both powerhouse companies as well as talented new filmmakers. Our festival strives to give talented first-time directors, producers, actors, new media creators and members of the creative teams a unique venue for their work and the positive exposure they deserve. It discovers and honors the achievements of filmmakers who produce high quality shorts and new media especially first timers. The Capitol Hill Film Classic is a one night only, live film screening event.

Risks and challenges
