Double Exposure Investigative Film Festival and Symposium

Double Exposure (DX) is the United States’ first and only film festival dedicated to investigative reporting on film. It pairs four days of film screenings/discussions with a cutting-edge professional symposium that brings together watchdog journalists and filmmakers venturing into investigative storytelling.

The fifth edition is expected to draw over 250 filmmakers and journalists for the symposium and more than 2,500 attendees for the broader festival for four days of film premieres, timely panels, workshops and master classes, pre-arranged one-on-one networking and pitch meetings with editors, producers and prized platforms, as well as a pro bono legal clinic.

Double Exposure screens timely, compelling films drawn from the notebooks and experiences of investigative journalists and visual storytellers working across a variety of media, whether in print, radio, or film. The films presented at Double Exposure include the Washington premiere of new narrative and documentary works that are either about investigative journalism or journalists, based on investigative reporting, or films that are investigations unto themselves. All screenings are followed by lively discussions with directors, producers, protagonists, subject experts and journalists.
