Celebrating film from around the globe, the Washington D.C. International Film Festival is up and running without a hitch. With a great selection of movies to choose from, it'll have something for anyone looking to experience another culture without having to actual travel.
The 27th edition of the Washington D.C. International Film Festival (also known as Filmfest DC) opens this Thursday with an interesting guest: WikiLeaks founder and subject of the festival's opening film, Julian Assange.
Following the American premiere of "Underground," the new film about Assange by Australian writer-producer-director Robert Connolly, the controversial figure will be interviewed over the phone by director of Filmfest DC Tony Gittens.
If a feature length fim and interview about one of TIME's Persons of the Year isn't in your cinema wheelhouse, there are ten more days of programming with more than 80 features.
