After 5 seasons, 75+ short screenplays read, and 130+ films programmed, DCFF has met so many awesome filmmakers, artists and writers. As we look forward to our 6th annual festival (February 22-24, 2019), we thought this was a great opportunity to check back in with some of our alumni. This is our seventh installment of, “DCFF Alumni: Where are they now?” Please check back for future posts and lots of updates and news about our filmmakers and writers.
