The Julien Dubuque International Film Festival brings filmmakers and storytellers together for its annual program of Documentaries, Features & Shorts.
Add that in 2016 we were voted as one of the TOP 50 FILM FESTIVALS worth the submission fee by Movie Maker. This is chosen out of over 3,500 film festivals.
In 2013, just in it's 3rd year, JDIFF was voted as one of the TOP 25 COOLEST FILM FESTIVALS IN THE WORLD by MovieMaker Magazine. In a short amount of time, the Festival has gained much recognition and some of the films that have screened at JDIFF and won in their category, have received distribution and reached a larger audience.
