Founded in December of 2014, the Duke Independent Film Festival is Duke University’s first and only campus-wide film festival. DIFF accepts short film submissions from any undergraduate or graduate student at Duke University, and the film festival is an annual event. The purpose of DIFF is to seek and foster the best filmmakers and storytellers on campus, providing an outlet for great films to be presented. In addition to hosting the annual film festival, DIFF hosts a variety of other film-related events on campus throughout the academic year.
