Now in its third year, the DC Shorts Film Festival has grown from 30 films in an afternoon at Flashpoint to more than 90 films being screened over the course of a week at the E Street Cinema and Canadian Embassy. With this amazing growth has come some challenges, including the need for more volunteers to house the filmmakers.

DC Shorts encourages filmmakers to come to Washington and attend the festival; this year, more than 140 filmmakers will attend, some of whom need a place to stay for a few days. Filmmakers are scheduled throughout the day so they really only need a place to sleep and shower. In the past, people who have housed filmmakers have found the experience to be simple, non-intrusive, and rewarding.

Please forward this to your friends and colleagues
who might be interested (or willing) to host a filmmaker
