Dumbo Film Festival 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.

By the end of the Seventies, a prosperous renewal has brought the district of Dumbo to a new life, and it is now considered to be one of New York’s most glamorous districts and a thriving destination for artists to meet and share their thoughts.

On this background of revival within the New York panorama, DFF aims to establish itself among the most important independent festivals in the world.

Producers and directors from around the world can meet each other here, encounter new ideas, and begin working toward prestigious goals.

DFF can be your stepping stone to go the distance (literally 2797 miles!) to Oscars night.

DFF is organized into six categories: Feature Narrative, Short Narrative, Feature Documentary, Short Documentary, Animation, and Experimental. The monthly nominees will receive a certificate of excellence and be granted access to the final phase of the competition.

LIFE AFTER OIL International Film Festival is an environmental & human rights film festival

As we are preparing for the post-petroleum era?

This festival starts with the intention of overshooting the simple exposure. Although it is important to raise public awareness on the risks connected to the exploitation and to the use of natural resource in the production of fossil fuels, still remains, the enormous and dramatic problem of the disasters caused by the lack of energy, with particular reference to the water supply, highly relevant to the world population. The main objective of the festival will be, therefore, not only emphasizing problems related to the use of fossil fuels, but especially identifying the alternatives which take into account, according to the present scientific knowledge, the several well-known methods of production.
