Produced by the nonprofit news organization 100Reporters, Double Exposure presents a film festival and concurrent symposium celebrating the best new films inspired by the investigative instinct.
The festival will open with the DC premiere of Netflix's latest real-life ecological thriller, THE IVORY GAME, and close with renowned documentary filmmaker, Steve James ABACUS: SMALL ENOUGH TO JAIL, also a DC premiere.
Double Exposure, a project of the investigative news organization 100Reporters, celebrates the finest new films inspired by the investigative instinct with a professional symposium for working journalists and visual storytellers. The symposium gives reporters and directors an opportunity to learn from and connect not only with each other, but with producers, editors, funders, and experts who can advance their work.
The festival will screen eight films at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, including seven DC premieres, while the symposium will present two days of panels, workshops and lightning talks at The National Press Club.
The Double Exposure professional symposium opens an unprecedented space for filmmakers and investigative journalists to come together to explore common issues, share best practices, and seed new forms of inspiration and collaboration.
Individual tickets are available online and on-site, as well as a Film Pass for entry to all regular film screenings at the National Portrait Gallery (excluding Opening Night). All Access Passes are also available for the two-day symposium, and include meals, regular film screenings and festival events.
