One night, one theme, a multitude of perspectives. Filmshop Presents is an annual event where Filmshop members come together to make short films based on a theme. We encourage cross-disciplinary exchange, experimentation, and vigorous collaboration. The night is always memorable and showcases the variety of filmmaking in our community.
Breakthrough Series, our film industry showcase, highlights some of the strongest work workshopped in Filmshop. The daylong screening is curated by an outside body of filmmakers and development professionals. Featuring work in the following categories: Narrative Films, Documentaries, and Screenplays, we will showcase the selected projects to an invited audience of festival programmers, distributors, and producers. Our goals are to help our members bring their projects to the next phase and to provide a forum for them to explore the next stages of their career.

Filmshop’s Breakthrough Series showcases a curated selection of our members' films in an intimate setting with festival programmers, distributors, and executive producers. Facilitating discussions centered around development and distribution, Breakthrough provides a forum for filmmakers to explore the next stages of their careers.
After each project is presented, there will be a conversation with the filmmaker and an industry luminary. Our past guests have included documentarian and DCTV Co-Executive Director Jon Alpert, playwright and screenwriter Aurin Squire (“This is Us”), and [CHANGE...] director Marc Webb ("(500) Days of Summer", "The Amazing Spider-Man"). Looking forward to announcing our luminaries in the months to come!
Featured projects range from works-in-progress to fully-produced narrative and documentary shorts, features, and series and feature screenplays. The event also functions as a meeting point and marketplace for filmmakers and industry guests to view these projects. More info to come soon!
