My husband and I spent last week in Washington DC. This was our first visit to the District of Columbia and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
The reason for our trip – our TV pilot “Military Miracles”, was one of 48 documentary and feature films screened at the Third Annual GI Film Festival.

The GI Film Festival was held at the Carnegie Institution of Washington.
The GI Film Festival is a celebration of the
American Armed Forces.
Here, visual artists have the opportunity to tell the heart-wrenching and heart-warming stories of the American warrior.
Our experience began with a Red Carpet private screening of the MGM/UA major motion picture Valkyrie, staring Tom Cruise – the beginning of 4 days and evenings of fascinating and captivating story-telling.
Information about the film Valkyrie – read here:
The Red Carpet Receptions provided great food and great networking opportunities.
Guests of honor included Wounded Warriors from Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Hospitals.
Hollywood insiders presented a workshop on tips and strategies for success in the film industry.
I even got to rub shoulders with actor Steven Baldwin. Here’s proof.
Steven Baldwin is promoting his soon to come movie called “Now More Than Ever”.
Check out the “Now More Than Ever” teaser here:
Baldwin’s movie is about our American Troops in Iraq, their stories and their need for our support.
Sunday we took the opportunity to tour DC for several hours.
The event culminated in an Awards Night. Then back to the hotel for a quick 3 hours of sleep, and off to the airport to catch the plane home.
