screenings & AWARDS

Deep Focus Film Festival hosts a live screening in front of an audience consisting of film fans, industry personnel, and of course our hand selected jury responsible for selecting films for awards. These screenings aim to showcase some of the films submitted, as well as to provide the optimal venue for the selection of Jury Award winners.

Generally, the films which are selected as finalists will be among those screened at the festival, but the lineup and screening selection may vary.

Semi-finalists will not screen unless otherwise notified. However, they will receive a laurel for promotional use.

Our festival will be held October 11th and 12th, 2019, at the screening room at Easy Lover Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We aim at keeping the events intimate to allow the chance for various filmmakers and other industry personnel to be able to easily meet, network and discuss the screened films.
