ABOUT THE COMMUNITY STORIES FESTIVAL
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. We have showcased short documentaries about these communities since 2010. Tonight's program screening is part of of the Ninth Annual Community Stories Festival taking place between November 8-14.
