About the DBFF: The Downtown Boca Film Festival is a non-profit 501 (c-3) organization dedicated to providing the local community and international visitors with a diverse presentation of films from around the world, including a venue of student shorts and Xtreme sports. In addition to offering films that might not otherwise be released theatrically in the USA, the DBFF provides a unique cultural experience as well as educational programs and forums for exploring the future of cinema. Founding sponsors for the DBFF are committed to providing independent film makers / artist with a venue to screen their films and to network with other filmmakers and industry insiders.
The DBFF is truly an independent film festival, small enough to allow for an intimate environment in which to mix and mingle, yet big enough to attract large local audiences, which has stayed close to its roots and mission of making available original and independent films not ordinarily seen in mainstream movie theaters.
The DBFF is still accepting submissions for the 6th annual film festival. The film festival will be screening over 100 films. Please submit your films through https://withoutabox.com/03film/03t_fin/03t_fin_fest_01over.php?festival_id=4469 Works in progress are accepted.
The DBFF is also interested in accepting a “Best of” compilation of films, exclusively featuring various institution’s students and alumni. This type of submission must be 90-minutes or less, and can be submitted for the cost of only one film.
