October 6th – 8th, 2016 | Washington, DC

Double Exposure, a project of the investigative news organization 100Reporters, celebrates the finest new films inspired by the investigative instinct. It combines film screenings for the public with a professional symposium for working journalists and visual storytellers. The symposium gives reporters and directors an opportunity to learn from and connect not only with each other, but with producers, editors, funders, and experts who can advance their work.

Film Festival

Double Exposure is the intersection between visual storytelling and investigative reporting. Eight films, taking audiences from the roots of investigative reporting to works that are redefining creative and journalistic boundaries, will be screened at the National Portrait Gallery.

Symposium & Workshops

Three days of panel discussions with the front-line reporters and filmmakers examining the major stories of our day.

Workshops focusing on nuts-and-bolts issues that can protect filmmakers as they venture into terrain that could end in a lawsuit.

2016 Symposium

Double Exposure will feature panel discussions with the front-line reporters and filmmakers examining Race and Police Conduct, Prisons, the Panama Papers and Tax Havens. Other panels will tackle investigations that germinate through personal experience, navigating the terrain in the wake of privately-financed investigations, and concepts of truth in film and print-based journalism. A second track of workshops will focus on nuts-and-bolts issues, like fact checking and insurance for errors and omissions, that can protect filmmakers as they venture into terrain that could end in a lawsuit.
