DCIFF 2023 builds connections, deepens discussions, creates spaces for filmmakers to interact with audiences and presents independent film issues to Congress. We pride ourselves on our attention to promoting filmmaker talent, education, press and opportunity – central to our mission. We are a forum for discussion, drawing attention to new films while expanding a film’s outreach. All applications through FilmFreeway. Our low submission fees cover the cost of supporting filmmaker travel to the festival (all finalists are expected to attend). High School Competition (no fee to submit) is Feb 25, 2023 / DCIFF is March 1-5, 2023. Full details HERE.
Introducing our two summer interns. They are both excited to start this new journey as they learn how to navigate the film world and we are thrilled to work with them. They will help us run our 5 week summer filmmaking course for teenagers and prepare for our Fall events and activities.
