Some of the most innovative and creative work in film today does not come from blockbusters out of Hollywood, but from smaller, independent productions made by fresh and hungry filmmakers.
Within every country in the world, there are those who pulls a team together, pick up a camera and start telling a story – and with today’s technology, many more have the same opportunity both in front of and behind the camera.
To balance such prospects with great storytelling and inventive execution, the DBF Film programme seeks to support up and coming filmmakers, technical crew and talent in creating something original.
By allowing individuals to meet with and learn from leaders in the industry and facilitate exposure of their current or future work, the DBF Film programme looks to nurture the next generation of talent in film.
