Double Exposure Investigative Film Festival and Symposium returns with a virtual festival that brings together filmmakers and investigative journalists working on vital stories amid extraordinary challenges.

Join us this October 14-18 to experience a unique professional conference designed to interact, engage and connect with industry peers and access opportunities to advance your work. With five days, a dozen new investigative films, over 30 panels, workshops and master classes, expect a deep dive with experts on safety and security in the field, interrogations into race and power, fundraising in the age of COVID-19, fact-checking, verifying and incorporating citizen-generated content and more. Hot off the press, we’ll have a new survival guide on contracts for indie filmmakers and freelancers, plus sessions on craft, including podcasting, music scoring, and taking print investigations into film and audio. Both our PRO BONO LEGAL CLINIC and CROSSING BORDERS, two signature programs, are coming back.

DX ACCESS also returns, providing you with unparalleled face time with funders, producers, festival programmers, distributors, media outlets, reporters, writers and directors. Get a Full Festival Pass + DX Access to request a series of ten-minute meetings with industry leaders, discuss your career, present an idea, or pitch a project at any stage of development.
