About Us

The Global Impact Film Festival (GIDC), presented by DCBX, is a socially- minded film festival happening August 25th to August 27th at the Renaissance Marriott in downtown DC.

For our third year, we continue our mission to empower lives by celebrating the power of media for social change. GIDC focuses on cultivating global outreach and celebrating culture through its official selection of filmmakers.

Some major topics in films both in the documentary and narrative category include agriculture, the environment on a global scale, education, homelessness, mental health, refugees and terrorism, 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.

In addition to the impactful films, speakers and workshops, we have discussion panels and networking events.

Can’t wait to see you there!
