DC Shorts - Biergarten Party @ Goethe-Institut Washington

Sep 11, 2015 | Washington, DC

DC Shorts loves to celebrate our filmmakers — and our audience! All parties include light refreshments and a special selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Attendees must be over 21 years of age and present photo ID at the door. Tickets must be purchased in advance online or at a box office, as we cannot allow on-site sales.


Celebrate the nine incredible films from Germany at this special event. Enjoy German snacks, beers, and specialty cocktails while dancing to G-Pop or watching selected shorts in the theater.
