About Us

The Washington Film Institute (WFI) was created to inspire audiences through film education and the cultivation of the cinematic arts. We do this by producing an international film festival, developing educational programs, and programming film events throughout the year. Among our programming initiatives is GREEN SCREEN: a new film series established to increase awareness of and build community around environmental issues.

John Hanshaw Director

The Institute was founded by John Hanshaw in the Fall of 2007. John has worked in film and television for over ten years at such institutions as NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation), PBS and most recently National Geographic. He is also the Director of the GUERRILLA FILM FEST (GFF), a festival set up in 2003 to provide an alternative venue for independent and foreign filmmakers who work outside the Hollywood system. He has degrees from Amherst College, Cambridge University, and GW Law.
