Playwright Alex Goldberg's Film CLOSURE To Premiere At DCIFF

5100 Films, 103rd Street Productions, Kampfire Films, Red Spear Productions and Writer/Director Alex Goldberg (Off Broadway's It Is Done) are pleased to announce the World Premiere of Goldberg's CLOSURE at the D.C. Independent Film Festival. The festival, which takes place February 14 -19, 2018, was founded in 1999 to nurture independent film. CLOSURE will World Premiere at 7:45pm on Saturday Feb 17th. For tickets please click here.

In Alex Goldberg's dark comedy, CLOSURE, Nina (Catia Ojeda) travels to Los Angeles, following her mother's funeral, to find her sister who has been missing for months. There she encounters a bizarre mix of Angelenos (including Cynthia Addai-Robinson and Dee Wallace) and uncovers the secret of her sister's disappearance.

The film also stars Milena Govich (Cabaret, The Boys from Syracuse, Good Vibrations), John Sloan, Tom Choi, and Marcelo Tubert. CLOSURE is produced by Beau J. Genot and Katherine Rosin with executive producers Robert Abramoff, Roger Cooper and Adam Weinstock.

"I was born and raised in D.C. and Northern Virginia, and that is where I first knew I wanted to make films. For CLOSURE to have its World Premiere in DCIFF is an honor and a big thrill," states Goldberg.

Shot in only 12 days of principal photography in Los Angeles, California, for an ultra low-budget, CLOSURE is a testament to the quality and tenacity of independent film and filmmakers. In addition, writer/director Alex Goldberg was seeking a new opportunity to collaborate with his wife, lead actress Catia Ojeda. Read More about Goldberg's process on his blog,

DCIFF is dedicated to fostering filmmakers at all stages in their careers, and this year we will host our third High School Film Competition. Young filmmakers spanning four continents will have the opportunity to receive feedback from experienced industry judges, and to feel the thrill of seeing their work presented in a theater with a live audience, something many filmmakers wait years to experience. To further support these and other artists, DCIFF offers the chance to engage intimately with the global film scene through a series of events, filmmaker discussions, workshop conversations, and talk backs. Last year's seminars spotlight Animation, Entertainment Law, Screenwriting, Online Copyright Protection, and a masterclass with Eva Tamargo.
