The Dumbo Film Festival (DFF) is a yearly event structured in monthly contests. Every month, each of the categories will be awarded and a final ceremony will be held every year in New York City’s district of Dumbo to award projects that have been judged the very best over the past year. This structure is meant to highlight both affirmed and emergent filmmakers and to launch promising artists into the world film stage.

This is great news for the film and the team working on it. Hopefully it ends up getting the nomination later on. It deserves that accolade as it’s such a singularly authentic cinematic experience.

I originally planned to attend the opening day of the Dumbo Film Festival, but missed out on the opportunity to support the filmmakers. I took the next day off to watch the winning films. Great screening room, lovely hospitality. I really enjoyed the distinguished selection of films curated from around the world; they kept me fully engaged and inspired. The Q&As were well thought out. So glad I attended and look forward to next year.
The organizers for the festival provided optimum service and are passionate about providing a platform for filmmakers like myself to express influential art.
The Dumbo Film Festival has really great programming and a cutting edge international selection. I was happy to be selected for it and wish them well for future events!
Great communication, value and followup, unfortunately I cannot comment on hospitality or networking as I have not attended yet – but if their communication and selection quality is anything to go on I am sure it can be highly recommended
