Open Road is hosting its first ever film festival in collaboration with and in celebration of City Arts and Eats and their proposed multi-use arts space in D.C.  It is a tribute to the art of the short (20 min. and under).

There will be a viewing of the films selected, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers whose films were selected and who are in attendance.

March 15 is VIRTUAL ONLY on YouTube.

March 16 is VIRTUAL and IN PERSON at the Writer’s Center, Bethesda, MD .

4508 Walsh Street, Bethesda, MD 20815
Masks are required.

For the virtual screenings, stay tuned after the show for a special screening category of Friends of the Fest and Honorable Mention.

At the end of the festival, we will award BEST OF THE FEST and THE OPEN ROAD AUDIENCE AWARD with RUNNER UP awards for each.

See you on the Big Screen!
