Filmfest DC has been going strong for 28 years. Will it make it to 29? That's unclear. The festival's organizers have described a dire financial situation that could mean an end for the long-running international festival. So if this is the event's final year, make sure you turn up for a lineup of more than 70 films, ranging from international spy thrillers and foodie flicks to documentaries about Jewish comedians and gross-out coming-of-age stories. Visit www.filmfestdc.org for a list of screenings and showtimes.
