Dedicated to the independent filmmaker, both Deep Ellum Film Festival (DE/F2) and the Santa Monica Film Festival SM/F2 showcase the best of local, national, and international independent films. DEFMAN strives to give back to filmmakers, musicians, and artists by providing them with exposure, funding and education. DE/F2 and SM/F2 each mark the first step of DEFMAN in assisting the artistic communities in both Dallas and Los Angeles. Aside from advancing independent film and filmmakers, the mission of DEFMAN is to aid cancer victims in enduring the unrelenting and unfortunate hardships associated with cancer, by providing them with financial assistance. This monetary aid is generated through events such as DE/F2 and SM/F2. The funds are then distributed through “The Cancer Relief Fund”, which was established by the DEFMAN Board of Directors. Individual donors are also able to contribute to the fund through private donations.
