Reel Progress

Reel Progress is the progressive film series sponsored by the Center for American Progress. Since 2005, CAP has hosted free screenings open to the public in Washington, D.C., and around the country. These screenings are followed by provocative panel discussions with leading policy experts, actors, and filmmakers. Reel Progress aims to advance a progressive agenda through innovative films that connect the arts to campaigns for social change and progressive public policy.
