SAVE THE DATE for the 5th Annual Destiny City Film Festival!

February 23rd – 25th, 2018

The Destiny City Film Festival will be back and better than ever for its 5th year in 2018!

After another successful year the Destiny City Film Festival has taken a careful look at where we exactly fit on the calendar. The DCFF board and staff have unanimously agreed to move the annual festival from it’s current late August slot to a more film friendly February starting in 2018. We believe that February is an ideal time for folks to spend a weekend catching the best of independent cinema at the charming Blue Mouse Theatre. 2017 was a great year for DCFF and we know that 2018 will be even better. Please join us in February.

Our call for film and short screenplay entries has closed, and we’re busy reviewing submissions! Notifications will be sent out in mid-January.

It’s not too late to get involved with #DCityFF2018!

From the Founder:

  I want DCFF to inspire local filmmakers through the films we program, and the events we organize, and to hold them to a higher standard – something I truly believe they deserve. I’m very excited about what lies ahead for filmmaking and storytelling in Tacoma, and about generating more support for those that contribute to that community.  

— Emily Alm


DCFF Attendee Testimonial:

“Last night, my husband and I watched Copenhagen again, which we saw on Closing Night at Destiny City last year.  We had loved it so much, and would never have seen it or thought about watching it, if we hadn’t gone to the festival, and it is one of our favorite movies now!”
