DC Chinese Film Festival & The One

International Women Film Festival will together present ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CAMERA - Women in Film Retrospective.

The screenings will take place on November 7-10, 2019 in Washington DC.



This year, DCCFF brings the spotlight to

both female filmmakers and females on screen, with the goal of showcasing the

changes to women's role in society and

addressing issues of gender and sexuality.



With an emphasis on perspective, reflection and conversation, we will partner with Freer Sackler Gallery and Landmark Theaters to showcase multiple films from Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Chinese American Cinema from different eras that are either made by female filmmakers or focus on female characters.
