Davis Feminist Film Festival CFE


The Davis Feminist Film Festival (DFFF) is now seeking submissions for its 2015 Festival!

The Davis Feminist Film Festival is a grassroots event that uses alternative media as a springboard for linking art to social issues. The goal of the festival is to showcase independent film spanning documentary, narrative, and experimental genres in order to explore perspectives often missing from mainstream media and culture. Now in its 10th year and with an increasingly international in scope, the festival provides an inclusive public space for under-represented artists ?particularly women and people of color? to raise consciousness about gender, race, class, sexuality, and other dimensions of social inequality. It is a fun, inspiring, community-building event or artists and audiences alike!
