blast from the drff's past!

Deaf Rochester Film Festival (DRFF) is proud to be running since 2005. Rochester has the highest per capita population of deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals in the United States, so it is only natural for Rochester to be the heart of the Deaf poetry and American Sign Language (ASL) studies. DRFF has brought countless Deaf and hard-of-hearing filmmakers from around the world to the Rochester community, taken place at various venues in the Rochester, New York area, and gathered the sign language communities to gather, discuss, and celebrate films, theatre, performances, and art made by Deaf and hard-of-hearing people all over the world!
