DC Independent Film Festival
DCIFF was launched in 1999 to nurture independent film. As the oldest independent film festival in Washington, The DC Independent Film Festival has a storied history of presenting extraordinary films. We have showcased cutting edge features, shorts and documentaries on every subject from every country with every budget and subject imaginable.
Our core mission is to support a thriving worldwide community of independent filmmakers in their expression of the diversity of perspective and commonality of experience that make us human.
As a competitive festival, all films are Washington DC premieres and many are US and world premieres.
