About
DocWeek

DocWeek is an annual film festival that takes place the third week of May, in Middleburg, Virginia. From Tuesday through Saturday, one film per day is shown at sunset, in an outdoor amphitheater setting, weather permitting, at the Middleburg Community Center. Doc Week features ONLY documentaries and is committed to limiting the audience to 150 viewers, ensuring an intimate, local community event. At a time when political discourse has become too often acrimonious, our goal is to bring together neighbors to share educational and often inspiring films and to encourage communication and highlight shared values.

This year, DocWeek will present a variety of films with subjects varying from the Dalai Lama to the sale of North Korean nuclear warheads to an evening of superb jazz. Enhancing our the experience will be participation by local residents whose backgrounds are relevant to the subjects of our chosen films. Last year, former Chief Scientist at NASA, Ellen Stofan, a resident of The Plains, spoke with us about global warming. This year, Steve Chase, a Unison resident and jazz aficionado, will help guide our Friday evening at "Ronnie's", and former State Department diplomat and President of the MacArthur Foundation and Dean of Georgetown's Foreign Service School, Bob Gallucci, will interview Mads Brügger, about his film, "The Mole." DocWeek is proud to highlight great films and also highlight some of our remarkable neighbors.
