The Deaf Rochester Film Festival (DRFF) has a proud history of hosting film festivals since 2005. Most films featured in the film festival have been written, produced, created, and performed by Deaf and hard of hearing individuals and film production companies around the world. We plan to present quality films that reflect this perspective on this year’s theme, Reframing the Deaf Lens.

DRFF’s mission is to promote and showcase films by deaf and hard of hearing filmmakers; screen films about the Deaf experience; encourage analysis and interpretations of Deaf Cinema and Deaf visual aesthetics; develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of the Deaf gaze in light of the diversity of genres, cultures, and styles of filmmaking; foster film as a medium for historical preservation of Deaf Culture; provide networking opportunities for Deaf and Hard of Hearing filmmakers and others involved in the field; and inspire future generations of Deaf and Hard of Hearing filmmakers.
