The film festival circuit is a busy one in the Washington area, but AFI's Silverdocs festival has established itself as the leader of the pack. Last year's festival saw 102 films screen at the Silver Spring theater, and some, like "Restrepo," "Freakonomics" and "Waiting for Superman" went on to become household names. This year's festival figures to be no different, offering a mix of new and old, from high-profile directors and independent DIYers alike.
