WASHINGTON (AP) - A film festival focused on increasing awareness of the events and heroes of the civil rights movement is under way in Washington.

The March on Washington film festival opened Wednesday and runs through July 25. Screenings will be held at sites across the city, including at memorials, museums and the Capitol Visitor Center.

A sold-out screening Friday night at NPR’s headquarters will feature the film “Talk to Me” about radio and the civil rights movement.

On Saturday morning, the screening of “Ruby Bridges” will be a family event focused on children of the civil rights movement at TheARC in Southeast Washington.

Other screenings will be held at the Navy Memorial, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the NCTA Theater, The Phillips Collection and the Supreme Court.
