Washington, D.C. – The Office of Cable Television, Film, Music, and Entertainment (OCTFME) has announced that Canvas, an exclusive event space located on DC’s vibrant 14th Street, has been chosen as the Location of the Month (LOTM) for April 2024.

With over 3,000 square feet of space and a capacity for up to 200 guests, Canvas has been purpose-built with various users in mind. The space boasts both indoor and outdoor areas, with a terrace overlooking 14th Street and 24’ ceilings inside that provide a dramatic effect to enhance any special occasion. Canvas can be purposed as an exclusive art gallery, used as a media launch space, a film shoot location, or for hosting a special occasion. The space is both intimate and spacious, and with an electronically operated garage door, it can be both an indoor and outdoor venue.

“We are thrilled to have Canvas as our Location of the Month for April 2024,” said Director of OCTFME, LaToya Foster. “Canvas is an exceptional event space that offers a unique and versatile setting for film shoots, media launches, and special occasions. It’s a great location for filmmakers to showcase their creativity and bring their vision to life.”


Canvas’ location on DC’s vibrant 14th Street makes it an ideal location for film shoots, providing the perfect backdrop for any scene. With its high ceilings and dramatic lighting, the space can be transformed to suit any need, making it a popular choice for both local and out-of-town filmmakers.

"We are honored to be featured as the Office of Cable Television, Film, Music, and Entertainment. Canvas is excited to be utilized as media production space and is a great backdrop for your next project," says Director of DC Venues, Amy Symonds.
