The Destiny City Film Festival is seeking individuals to join our Advisory Board to help drive future growth, programming, community outreach, and general festival strategy. Advisory Board members are not required to provide a certain number of hours or fundraising dollars – they are simply asked to provide input and advice. This informal Board is flexible, and we welcome folks of all backgrounds and film experience levels to share their interest in joining.

DCFF Filmmaker Testimonial:

“[We] had a wonderful time screening our film to a packed house as well as visiting with fellow filmmakers and enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest! The festival Staff was incredibly helpful and kind- this festival is not to be missed!” — D.J. Haye (Writer, Director, Editor, Producer)


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 Nakada-Alm
