The mission of the Davis Film Festival is to celebrate independent cinema from around the world and our own backyard.

The Davis Film Festival was started in April 2003 by Judith Plank,
a long-time film festival volunteer and resident of Davis, California.
She saw that the film festival would fill a niche. People in Davis love
film, but no one had ever started a film festival. The festival is growing,
and 2014 will be our eleventh year.

Judith Plank (Festival Director)

The Eleventh Annual Davis Film Festival takes place April 12-13, 2014.
We accept works in film or video of any length or genre. Submissions are
accepted on DVD or online screener. Please label all work clearly with your name, contact information, exhibition format and running time. Cue all tapes to start of program and provide prints with sufficient leader, heads out, ready for projection. The festival cannot be held accountable for faulty or uncued preview tapes.

Final programming decisions will be made by the screening committee in
late March. All entrants will be notified in writing of the status of their
submission by April 5, 2014 at the latest. If you change your address after submission of work, please inform us.

If selected, an exhibition-quality print of tape in the format you've
indicated on the entry form must be made available to the festival by
April 10, 2014.

Directors should also provide press kits including still photos (300 dpi digital photos) and brief description, plus any other supporting materials after acceptance into festival.
