Docs In Progress is all about building community through documentary film, but we are proud to be based in the vibrant, diverse, and historic communities of Silver Spring, Montgomery County, and the broader Washington DC Metropolitan Area. When we teach documentary production to adults and youth in the area, we have them focus on stories drawn from our local community. What you will see tonight are the results of those efforts. While many of tonight's films are the first films ever made by the filmmakers, we couldn't be prouder of their work. We hope you will enjoy!

Tickets are FREE thanks to the support of the City of Takoma Park, the Maryland State Arts Council, the Maryland Film Office, the Maryland Humanities Council, the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County, the Takoma Foundation, and people like you.
