"Our City Film Festival" Sunday, Feb. 10, at Busboys and Poets

When it comes to hometown pride, D.C.’s film community has perhaps one-upped the city’s music community—which, until now, likely thought getting the District’s stars and bars tattooed on their bodies was the ultimate sign of D.C. love. Sure, a tattoo will cost you a few bucks and take up an hour or so of your time, but writing, producing, and shooting a film that celebrates the nation’s capital? Now that’s a serious commitment of time and finances—one that the organizers of “Our City Film Festival” pay tribute to. Featuring close to a dozen short and feature-length films “about or that take place in Washington, D.C. with particular attention paid to those about community service, communities/neighborhoods, history, inhabitants, culture, and customs,” the festival closes with a ceremony of awards handed out by a panel of judges from D.C.’s film, media, and arts scenes. For those without the means to finance a film that showcases their D.C. love, well, there’s always the $15 stars-and-bars film festival T-shirts. The films show at noon at Busboys and Poets, 2021 14th St. NW. $7-$20. (202) 387-7638.
