Why
Delilah?

Associated with treacherous and voluptuous women, Delilah first appeared in the Old Testament as Samson's Philistine lover. The secret to his great strength was highly prized and Delilah was the woman tasked with unveiling it. Goading him until he confided it was his beautiful hair, she cut it off in his sleep before handing him over to his enemies. 

In religious texts the story of Delilah and Samson was synonymous with proving why outsiders were not to be trusted. At Delilah Films, we're reclaiming this delicate name and all it encompasses.  Be the outsider, be the bold woman, take the lead, all are welcome at the table.
