  • Submission Info

DCIFF was launched in 1999 to nurture independent film. As a competitive festival, all films are Washington DC premieres and many are U.S. and world premieres.

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.

By exhibiting world premiere screenings, hosting timely seminars and workshops, and sponsoring discussions with the United States Congress, DCIFF gives independent filmmakers opportunities for their voices to be heard in a way that no other festival can provide.
