Ever since its launch in 1999, the DC Independent Film Festival has celebrated autonomous filmmaking around the world through competition and screenings. All of the festival's selections are Washington DC premieres, and many are being shown for the first time in the world. Hailing from various countries and cultures, these projects include narrative features, shorts, and documentaries. They also span genre: throughout the day, comedy and horror films share screening space with experimental and interactive projects. To complement this showcase, the DCIFF also features a schedule of seminars and workshops on featured films and aspects of the filmmaking process. They've even sponsored panel talks with members of the United States Congress.

Bob Wollam's life is in full bloom. Since 1989, the gardener has surrounded himself with 11 acres of fresh flowers, more than 80 varieties of trees, shrubs, and perennials, and a volunteer army of green-thumbed interns. And the plants aren't the only beauty to fill the grounds. A federal house dating back to 1819 features antique furnishings and was fully restored over Bob's first ten years on the farm. Guests are welcome to spend the night, and get full old-fashioned experience with fresh-baked goods from Bob's sister Karen, who lives next door, and eggs or career advice from the farm's chickens.
