Staying Defiantly Independent with Dances With FilmsIf you're reading this, we probably don't need to tell you that there are a lot of film festivals out there. So what sets Los Angeles' Dances With Films (DWF) apart? For the answer, look no further than the "defiantly independent" part of its tagline. Kicking off its 15th year tomorrow, May 31st, DWF has always stayed true to its original mission of supporting and discovering unknown moviemakers. Unlike most other independent film festivals, you won't see any big names on the program at DWF... and that's just how co-founder Leslee Scallon likes it.
