The Detroit Filmmakers Awards is a cinematic organization that was founded to celebrate the achievement of Detroit independent filmmakers and recognize the talent that Detroit contributes to film nationwide. The organization also offers resources, support and recognition to film and filmmakers. DFA will celebrate film year-round. Our goal is to recognize up and coming Filmmakers and create a hub that tells our stories and employs our working hands.
On Sunday May 5, 2019 250+ of the best and brightest in Detroit’s film and media industry will ascend to the Champion’s Room Presented By Skillman Foundation to celebrate Detroit’s independent film community with awards being presented in over 27 subcategories from 3 distinct film disciplines (short, feature, and digital series). With over 30 nominations for Best Director, Best Film, Best Actor and Actress, and the DFA Lifetime Achievement Award, the inaugural celebration of the Detroit Filmmaker Awards is sure to be the next collective step towards self-actualization and self-celebration for Detroit film. Join us in continuing this legacy of greatness in film in the Midwest, as we overlook the all new The Corner Ballpark Presented by Adient and a sweeping view that stretches from the shopping corridor of Michigan Ave into Downtown Detroit.
