WATCH: AFI DOCS

Matthew Heineman, Director of CARTEL LAND

AFI DOCS is a five day international documentary film festival that takes place at landmark venues in Washington, DC and the world-class AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center, the independent film hub of the metropolitan region. With the presence of artists, audience members and political leaders, AFI DOCS shines a bright light on documentary film and harnesses the power of this important art form and its potential to inspire change.

The festival is the only one of its kind to connect audiences and documentary filmmakers to policy leaders in the seat of our nation's government.
