Two Nights, Four Screenings, 11 Award-Winning Short Films
Washington, D.C. – DC Shorts is hosting the annual event, DC Shorts WINS, on Friday, Feb. 28, and Saturday, Feb. 29, at the Miracle Theatre. After taking a one-year hiatus, DC Shorts WINS returns with all 11 films that won awards at the most recent DC Shorts International Film Festival, which takes place every September, since 2003.
The line-up includes short films from seven countries (Canada, France, Poland, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA, Venezuela) with a range of genres from dark comedy and animation to documentaries and dramas, and will be screened in two, 90-minute showcases.
In addition to receiving recognition from DC Shorts, these films have received accolades worldwide and have a wide variety of topics including: the French animated comedy Hors Piste (BAFTA winner) about rescue workers with a twist; the Polish dark comedy Atlas (Rome International Film Festival winner) about a curious psychiatric patient; the Ukrainian drama Anna (London Film Festival winner, Cannes Film Festival nominee) about the work of a single mother in war-torn Eastern Ukraine; the United Kingdom documentary Kamali (BAFTA nomination), about a young skate boarder, her fishing village, and a journey of self-discovery with her mother; and the French animated comedy I’m Going Out for Cigarettes (currently nominated in France for a Cesar Award).
If you love films as much as we do, DC Shorts WINS is the perfect way to spend your Friday or Saturday night – enjoying acclaimed films that take you around to world in 90 minutes, while enjoying a glass of wine, popcorn, and a proper theater experience.Joe Bilancio, DC Shorts Programming Director
