march on washington protestThis year the festival, whose theme is “Who Tells the Story,” is being held virtually.

The 2020 March on Washington Film Festival will take place September 20-27 and include panel discussions, documentaries, performances and short films.

Through thought-provoking film screenings, panel discussions, and the performing arts, the festival will attempt to capture some of the true heroes and the real yet still untold events of our nation’s Civil Rights Movement—then and now.

MOWFF 2020 will include films such as Women in Motion (a documentary centering the story of Star Trek icon Nichelle Nichols), Brother Outsider: The Life and Times of Bayard Rustin, and The Czar of Black Hollywood (a documentary on historic filmmaker Oscar Micheaux).

On Monday, Sept. 21, MOWFF will hold the 2020 Awards Gala honoring the late Rep. John Lewis with the March on Washington Lifetime Legacy Award.

All-access passes are available for $25; $12 for students and educators.
