Double Exposure Announces Lineup for 7th Annual Film Festival

The seventh annual festival Double Exposure Investigative Festival and Symposium will be held next month, opening with a film on the NSA whistleblower who exposed Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The festival, a project of the nonprofit investigative news organization 100Reporters, will run from Oct. 13-17 and feature 12 films and more than 15 shorts, its largest slate to date, event organizers said.

This year’s list of films includes “United States vs. Reality Winner,” a documentary about the 25-year-old NSA contractor who was imprisoned for unauthorized release of government information to the media.

“Through this awe-inspiring lineup, shaped and driven by the investigative instinct, we glimpse the growing power of film to engage people with pressing issues of justice, humanity and our shared future on a profound level,” said Diana Jean Schemo, the festival’s founder and co-director. “The festival pays tribute to the resourcefulness, resilience and creativity of investigative journalists and filmmakers, whose best work the filmmakers and journalists featured in this year’s program are reaching extraordinary new heights with their craft and telling vital stories that go well beyond headline news.”

The lineup also includes films about police corruption in Baltimore and school corruption in Louisiana.

Single tickets will be available for sale starting Sept. 21. For more information, go to doubleexposurefestival.com.
