As this is the first year in constructing an international film festival from the ground up, we are very pleased to see the amount of entries and interest we’ve received in just several days of opening up submissions. Worldwide entries from award-winning films have been submitted and many movies from Guam and the Pacific Asia region are slated to make their festival debut as well. Here’s more info on the upcoming festival:
The Guam International Film Festival (GIFF) is proud to announce its first annual event in September 2011 and has just opened up its Call For Entries for feature films and shorts in the following categories:
- Made in the Marianas
- Student Under 18
- Music Videos
- Mobile Short
The festival will take place from Sep 30 thru Oct 2nd, 2011.
The Guam International Film Festival is breaking new ground in its inaugural year. With an abundance of creative talent and worldwide recognition emerging from Asia, Pacific Asia and the Western Pacific, GIFF aims to unify, celebrate and showcase to the region and the world, the collective experience through the universal medium of film.
Only a few hours away from major international metropolitan cities such as Sydney, Manila, Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, and Hong Kong, Guam has always served as the global gateway to an eclectic mix of professionals from the US, Asia and Pacific rim offering a platform to exchange opportunities in business and entertainment.
GIFF strives to capture the passion and spirit of independent filmmakers and their films as we showcase them to the Pacific Asia region.
