Hello, I’m Patty with Seattle Deaf Film Festival (SDFF). Guess what? The fourth SDFF is coming up this spring. Yay! Our film festival cannot exist without your film submissions!!

Melissa: Three things
They will accept films from 5 genres - documentary, drama, animation, thriller/action and comedy/musical. The film has to fit one of those categories.
They can show films that haven’t been shown at the Seattle Deaf Film Festival previously, only for the first time.
And lastly, it’s by, for, and about the Deaf community! I love that.
