Double Exposure Investigative Film Festival and Symposium returns this October 10-13 to Washington, DC, presenting its milestone fifth edition. This combined festival and professional conference uniquely connects scribes and visual storytellers to each other, and to the industry that supports them.

DX offers two days of discussions, workshops, brown bag lunches with directors, a pro bono legal clinic, and much more. Sign up for one-on-one networking meetings, pitch sessions and free legal advice.

Panels this year include INVESTIGATIVE PODCASTS: THE SOUND AND THE FURY exploring a format that has exploded with some of the most captivating investigative storytelling to be found in any medium; and CROSSING BORDERS, an exciting new initiative for print projects moving into film, and filmmakers venturing into investigative territory, to screen works and hear feedback from across the aisle. Catch US, World and Washington premieres of the best new investigative documentaries followed by smart, provocative conversations with leading directors including Barbara Kopple, Feras Fayyad and Alex Gibney.
