About Us


The Global Impact Film Festival (GIDC), brought to you by DCBX, is a dynamic independent film festival in Washington, D.C. that focuses on cultivating global outreach, celebrating culture and supporting non-profit organizations through their selection of socially impactful films. Our mission is to empower lives by celebrating the power of media for social justice. We showcase short documentary and narrative films that provoke and inspire social change.


Our festival theme is the Emerging Power of Media for Social Justice, in which we will showcase films that provoke and inspire social change.

Last year, some major topics in films both in the documentary and narrative category included agriculture, the environment on a global scale, homelessness, sexual abuse and refugees in different parts of the world, to name a few.

Previous speakers and talent have included the likes of Jaws Cinematographer, Bill Butler; Mind and Media’s Aldo Bello and DC Stunts Coalition’s Dylan Hintz among others.

We will showcase short documentaries and narratives as well as provide attendees with informative panel discussions and fun networking events.

The following awards will be given to the selected winners at our Awards Ceremony to be held on Sunday, August 26th in Washington, DC:

Best Documentary, Best Narrative, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Audience Choice Award, Global Impact Award, and more.

Mark you calendar for AUG 24- 26, 2018 for this fourth annual celebration!
