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.

We promise to bring audiences crucial “must see” documentaries and powerful narratives that inspire discussion and action on the wide array of social justice issues from around the world.

Our goal is to bring together socially minded filmmakers, digital media professionals, social entrepreneurs and the like to create a social impact through film.
