Named as one of the “20 Coolest Film Festivals” and “Top 50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” by MovieMaker Magazine, deadCenter screens over 100 films, hosts legendary special events, provides one-one-one opportunities between filmmakers and distribution professionals, and provides a window into independent film with our Icon panel series- featuring luminaries such as Carol Littleton, Judd Nelson, Bob Berney, Elvis Mitchell, and two time Oscar winner Albert S. Ruddy.
WHY deadCenter: deadCenter is run by working filmmakers. We know how difficult and overwhelming the distribution process can be. Since its inception in 2012, our Distribution Forum has served to ease that process. deadCenter invites sales agents and distributors from across the country to meet with every accepted dCFF filmmaker attending the festival. Whether you have a feature with tons of celebrities or a short film you made in high school, this is your chance to bend the ear of a distribution professional and find out how it all works.
The festival’s energy attracts filmmakers and film enthusiasts from across the world. With enhanced national visibility and our knack for making every attendee a VIP, deadCenter makes its mark in the deadCenter of country.
