Our Mission

The Global Impact Film Festival (GIDC), brought to you by DCBX, is a dynamic socially-minded, 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.

We showcase short documentary and narrative films that provoke and inspire social change. We aim to bring together people of different cultures and backgrounds in one place for the celebration of life, culture and diversity through our official selections of films. We strive to help filmmakers progress in their careers and make a positive impact with their short films. Our mission is to empower lives by celebrating the power of media for social justice.
