WASHINGTON, D.C. is the capital of the United States and the 8th largest DMA in the country. The city was named after George Washington, the first President of the United States, while the name, District of Columbia , abbreviated as D.C., is a reference to Christopher Columbus.

Located on the banks of the Potomac River and bordered by Virginia and Maryland, Washington D.C. was planned and developed in the late 18th century. The city was initially intended to serve as the permanent national capital, and the federal district was formed to keep the national capital distinct from the states. Washington D.C. is home to the Nationals of MLB, the Wizards of the NBA and the Redskins of the NFL. The new Nationals Park in southeast Washington, built in 2008, can seat 41,222 sports fans.

IMBD lists over 960 feature films, TV series and specials shot on location in Washington D.C. The Washington, D.C. Film Society is an active non-profit organization that is dedicated to the appreciation of quality mainstream, independent and international films.

The Washington, D.C. Independent Film Festival has birthed many new artists, while Washington, D.C. is also a silent star in many Hollywood films including Wedding Crashers, The Sentinel, Syriana, National Treasure, and Mission: Impossible III, among others. The city is now considered a popular destination for movies and television. In fact, On Location Tours, which is a sightseeing company that specializes in TV and movie tours, has launched a guided bus tour taking visitors around the nation’s capital to the places where feature films and TV programs have been shot, including Georgetown where The Exorcist was filmed, the church that was featured in the film, Wedding Crashers, and the St. Elmo’s Fire bar.
