The DFF believes in the power of film production and our main purpose is to promote Kentucky films and celebrate Kentucky Filmmakers. We hope that young and old independent filmmakers will be inspired to create their own pieces of art, network with like minded people, and utilize the vast scenery that we are blessed with right in our back yard. We plan to grow the event each year and eventually expand to a 3 day festival. We believe this will promote local tourism, and help grow local business.
The 1st Annual Dogslaughter Film Festival will feature the festival premiere of Moonbow, a 7-10 minute short film festival online competition, the 1st and 2nd place films will be shown at the festival, an awards ceremony for the film competition, a live concert with original music by Erica Olson and Darron Stugil, and exclusive offers from Country Boy Brewing and Rolling Oven Pizza Food Truck!
