DCFF Filmmaker Testimonials:

“Our documentary ‘The River’ was part of the 2021 Destiny Film Festival and we had a really great experience being part of the event… We’ll definitely submit to DCFF again and would recommend it highly to filmmakers! Truly great experience all around.” — Heather Pilder Olson (Producer, Director)

“[We] had a wonderful time screening our film to a packed house as well as visiting with fellow filmmakers and enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest! The festival Staff was incredibly helpful and kind- this festival is not to be missed!” — D.J. Haye (Writer, Director, Editor, Producer)


From the Founder:

  I want DCFF to inspire local filmmakers through the films we program, and the events we organize, and to hold them to a higher standard – something I truly believe they deserve. I’m very excited about what lies ahead for filmmaking and storytelling in Tacoma, and about generating more support for those that contribute to that community.  

— Emily Nakada-Alm
