Double Exposure: Investigative Film Festival and Symposium

Double Exposure: Investigative Film Festival and Symposium

October 6, 2016 9:00 AM

Location: Holeman Lounge

Double Exposure, the nation’s only investigative film festival and symposium, returns to Washington, DC from October 6-8. Double Exposure, a project of the investigative news organization 100Reporters, pairs film screenings showcasing new works inspired by the investigative instinct with a symposium for working journalists and filmmakers. The festival will screen eight films at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, including seven DC premieres, while the symposium will present two days of panels, workshops and lightning talks at The National Press Club.

On October 6 and 7, the Double Exposure symposium will feature two tracks of programming with panel discussions that address the theoretical, philosophical, ethical, and aesthetic issues arising from the intersection between cutting-edge investigative journalism and visual storytelling, and workshops where practitioners can receive practical hands-on training.

Double Exposure provides a bridge between two intersecting but divergent communities—traditional investigative journalists and visual storytellers. It opens an unprecedented space for filmmakers and journalists to explore common issues, and to seed new forms of inspiration and collaboration. This event gives practitioners an opportunity to learn from and connect not only with each other, but with the producers, editors, funders, and experts who can advance their work.

Members of the National Press Club can enjoy a 20% discount on tickets and passes to Double Exposure using code NPC20. For more information on symposium and film programming, speakers and ticketing, visit
