WMIFF was established to celebrate and provide a platform of achievements for all cinema artists. 

WMIFF festivities are open to all, featuring some of the most talented artists in both film and music.

WMIFF is proud to showcase and recognize all independent artists worldwide.  

In 2015, WMIFF’s introduction to new and unique categories created more opportunities for filmamakers.

We offered a New Directors Showcase, which was exclusive and limited to a Director’s first feature-length film; Student/Emerging Filmmakers category was geared towards student filmmakers and music artists, and films directed by Women, along with other special spotlights on the works of the South-East Asian origin. 

The festival attracts celebrities, media journalists, civic and community leaders, film crews and film enthusiasts from around the globe, as well as the DC metropolitan area which includes Virginia and Maryland. 

In previous years, WMIFF wowed attendees and enthusiasts with award-winning musical performances along with special guest appearances with five Emmy, two Golden Globe, One Grammy and two times Oscar Nominee Carol Connors, Grammy Award Winner Newang Khechong, Emmy Award Winners David Lago and Merrie Lynn Ross, and twice Grammy nominated Cicso Steele.
