DWBFF
FILMS OFFICIALLY
SELECTED
TO COMPETE

Fall - 2021




DWBIFF has instituted a system to ensure entries do not compete against each other, but get recognized for their merits. 
They compete against themselves: we judge each entry on individual merits and score on an inherent value system. 

Becoming an "Official Selection" means your film passed through the first judging stage (DID NOT get rejected), now being able to go in front of the AWARD judges to decide the award (s) will receive, if any.

It does not mean your film will screen.

We will send the award notification the week of  Janyary 9, 2022.

If your film receives a Best Of Festival award , it will be eligible for review by our long-standing and reputable distribution associates; PLUS, we will screen a few TOP Awards at the WRPN.tv sponsored Multi-Festival Event Rehoboth Beach, DE 2022 and Berkeley Springs, WV 2022 (At our discretion and by invitation, based on local demographics and COVID-19 situation)
