Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
The American Film Institute‘s film festival AFI Docs has brought the latest documentaries to the DC area each summer since 2003. Like many other festivals, it’s incorporated an online component this year, allowing viewers around the country to check out its program. Ren Scateni has already praised the selection North By Current for Hyperallergic. Other films in the lineup include a 20th-anniversary look at the events of 9/11; a biography of Anthony Bourdain; and an archival revival of a landmark Black concert, as well as new films by Kevin Jerome Everson, Garrett Bradley, and Sergei Loznitsa.
Individual films can be purchased to stream for $10. Tickets to in-person screenings can be purchased for $13 ($11 for AFI members). Passes and tickets to other events are available at varying prices.
When: June 22–27
Where: Online and in person at the AFI Silver Theatre (8633 Colesville Road, Silver Spring, MD)
