And We're Back...

We're back and better than ever! We are excited to bring you the 2nd annual Detroit filmmaker awards. The film community has grown since our last Filmmaker Awards ceremony in 2019 and we hope to see and congratulate everyone in person next year. 

We will continue to stay committed to the vision of celebrating diverse narratives and entertaining performances.  Detroit's contribution to independent film and major motion pictures over the years has been very  impressive. Detroit employs tens of thousands of actors, voice actors, and production crews to entertain the masses of the Motor City and abroad. DFA is working toward a future that reflects the rich diversity, transformation, and historic preservation that comes from using cinema as a tool for cultural education and exchange. 


Get your opportunity to talk one-on-one with  award-winning directors, producers, actors and actresses.
