 We’ve been around for a few years, and we can’t wait to be a part of Tacoma’s film and storytelling community for many more years to come. Please check out this opportunity to help ensure that DCFF can continue to program high quality films, celebrate storytelling, and create opportunities for our community to connect in 2016 and beyond. Thank you for your support!

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


2014 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!”
