Location scouting…aahhhhh…one of the many pleasures of throwing together the 6th edition of the nation’s capital’s first ever festival that entertains and educates through the promotion and showcasing of digital media arts. DC Web Fest 6 is coming right on along- IN FACT, submissions are officially open as of…NOW!
So we have spent loads of time trying to find the perfect home for DC Web Fest 6 and we checked out the Angelika Theatre at Union Market. It’s a beautiful venue! it has that most-dope indie vibe, and it’s in a pretty convenient location- NE D.C., right off of the NoMa-Gallaudet U metro stop. There are plenty of cool eateries, coffee shops, and other fun places to explore at the adjacent Union Market. The whole area just has a artsy feel to it. Graffiti adorns the sides of many of the buildings. Doc 5 is a nearby old warehouse with venue charm that hosts various events, from weddings to festivals. That’s just what true artists do- create and bring new out of the old.
So, this place definitely feels like a great potential home for DC Web Fest 6. Will it be the set venue? We don’t know yet. Still have a little more exploring to do BUT this place is definitely in our top five list.
