GSSCC Proud to be Among Sponsors for AFI DOCS

GSSCC is, once again, pleased to be among the sponsors for AFI DOCS, described by The Washington Post as "the nation's leading documentary film festival." AFI DOCS returns this year with screenings at the historic AFI Silver Theatre as well as venues in Washington, D.C. from June 19 to June 23. This year's program includes more than 70 films, all original, enlightening, and at times, daring and boundary-pushing explorations of the world around us. Beginning with the opening night world premiere of HBO's justice doc Bryan Stevenson's Fight For Equality, there's plenty to discover for film fans, as well as insightful panels, presentations and more.
