The Dunedin International Film Festival is a platform for filmmakers to share their original content with the Florida film maker's community. For our first year we are a shorts festival only. #WeareDIFF aims to develop the film community in Florida and bring awareness to the growing Arts and Cultural community of Dunedin, Florida.

#DowntownDIFF has been created by  collection of creatives committed to growing the film industry in Florida. While our favorite colors are neutral, out opinions on human equality are not. We aim to share content that shines light on the injustice in the world. This film festival is a platform for ALL filmmakers from every walk of life. Let's make this a gathering of nations .  Our first year is a film shorts festival and we can't wait to show the world what you've made!
