The Derby City Film Festival


A different kind of festival...

From the beginning the DCFF has distinguished itself from other festivals, by selecting the only the very best in true independent films. Focusing on independent films and filmmakers rather than celebrities and hype, the DCFF sets out to prove that quality films do not have multi-million dollar budgets. Credit card advances, family loans, selling plasma, doing whatever it takes to get your dream and vision to the big screen are the types of films and filmmakers we showcase. Those are true independent films.

Since the inaugural year in 2008 the DCFF has been proud to host the World & U.S. Premieres of over 30 films including several from right here in the Bluegrass State.

As we prepare for the 2012 edition of the festival it is becoming more apparent that Louisville has taken major steps in not only becoming a "go to" location to screen newly produced independent films, but a place where independent film production flourishing as well.

So whether you are a filmmaker or just a lover of film, we encourage you to come and be apart of the Derby City Film Festival. We bet by the time you leave you wonder why every festival doesn't do it this way.

See what you've been missing.

The 2012 DCFF will be held February 17th - 19th, 2012 and submissions open July 1st, 2011.
