The Julien Dubuque International Film Festival is dedicated to enriching the community and bridging cultures through the education and promotion of arts through independent film. JDIFF acknowledges emerging filmmakers from around the world and supports diverse and cause-related films.
Add that in 2016 & 2017 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.
Films will be shown in different venues throughout Main Street, downtown Dubuque. You can purchase Individual film tickets or All Access Passes, depending on how many films and events you want to see and attend throughout this 4 day event.
