ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The 2nd annual ThrillSpy Film Festival was a great success! ThrillSpy has become the standard for the international thrillers and spy film in the world market. Last year films from Thailand, Canada and England won major awards and continue to do well on the world festival circuit. We believe movies and films should be about having fun and escapism. ThrillSpy was recently voted as one of the top 10 film festivals in the Washington DC metropolitan area. Our goal is to celebrate this genre and give selected films the best chance of exposure to an enthusiastic audience and network distributors. Our 240 seat screening venue is the largest true HD screen with stadium seating in the Washington DC Metropolitan area. The festival is a four day event which includes screenings, DC Spy Museum and law enforcement museum tours, VIP parties, receptions and concludes with the ThrillSpy Awards Masquerade party for filmmakers and attendees. Only steps from the US Capitol, the FBI headquarters, national monuments, restaurants and world class entertainment. Join us this year for the new annual tradition in Washington DC.
