iPOP at SilverDocs in Silver Spring, MD

iPOP at SilverDocs in Silver Spring, MD

by Wendy Mitchell

The AFI and Discovery Communications presented the first SilverDocs Documentary Festival in Silver Spring, MD, from June 18-22. In addition to proving popular to community members, the festival also attracted quite a few of the filmmakers who were on hand for Q&As with their screenings. The five-day event held a number of symposiums and parties, and even a community street fair where legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk strutted his stuff.
