OCTFME Recognizes The Eaton Hotel DC as the September 2019 Location of the Month

Tuesday, September 17, 2019

The Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment (OCTFME) recognizes EATON HOTEL DC as the SEPTEMBER 2019 Location of the Month.  

Founded by Katherine Lo, whose background in activism and film-making is what fuels her vision of a new inclusive gathering place for change-makers and creatives which is Eaton Hotel. 

Eaton Hotel DC's media arm supports film and television productions, artistic endeavors, live events, and programming opportunities with multiple portals for engagement including: a radio station, cinemas, artists and activist residencies, music venues speaker auditoriums and more. Eaton Workshop is a modern day community center and laboratory supporting creativity across multiple creative mediums. The hotel also offers 15,0000 square feet of event space for meetings, conferences and events and sweeping views from its roof top balcony bar and lounge, which are ideal for cinematically appealing views of the District.

"We are ecstatic to be recognized by OCTFME as the featured Location of the Month for September 2019," stated Sheldon Scott, Director of Culture at Eaton Hotel.  He continued, "With Media being one of Eaton’s key pillars, Eaton consists of distinct parts—Hotel, House, Media, Wellness, and Impact. Eaton Workshop is a global purpose-driven company and creative lab at the intersection of culture, media, hospitality, wellness, and progressive social change. We are dedicated to providing safe spaces for the film and television community to create and collaborate in spaces like our Cinema and Radio Station."

Collectively, the pillars serve as an incubator for arts and culture, a beacon for sustainability, a hub for impact initiatives, a holistic healing center, and a global media presence. Building a community with a shared ethos of caring for today’s world and conceiving of how we can make it better, Eaton forms connections through its physical spaces, as well as through dynamic digital storytelling and experiences.
