Our City aims to bring DC communities together and celebrate the rich cultures, stories and scenes that make up “our city.” The festival is presented and run by Yachad (“together” in Hebrew), a non-profit dedicated to advancing affordable housing and community development. Proceeds from the festival go toward Yachad’s programming. This year’s festival will take place on February 12th and 13th at The Goethe Institute in Chinatown.

Our film, Community Harvest , documents the dramatic transformation of a vacant lot in Columbia Heights into a majestic community garden. The ‘North Columbia Heights Green’ community garden project was built by Washington Parks & People, the same organization which runs the Josephine Butler Parks Center, where Meridian Hill Pictures’ studios are located.

Other films featured in the festival range in topics, from a documentary recapping the glory days of the Washington Redskins through the voices of former players, cheerleaders and fans, to a suspense drama produced by the Theivery Corporation about Washington, DC’s modern day likeness to ancient Babylon. The Opening Night Party (Saturday, Feb. 12th, 8-11pm) will be held at R.F.D’s and will feature beer specials as well as performances by Christylez Bacon, GRAMMY nominee, Arts and Humanities Council grantee, and subject of a former film festival documentary.
