Guam International Film Festival

The Guam International Film Festival is proud to officially announce its open call for entries for the 2014 season!

In short, we're the cinematic bridge between the U.S. and Asia. Our past festivals include Academy Award, Sundance and Cannes Palme d'Or winners side-by-side with first-time DIY indie filmmakers. We're eclectic and we love 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 a unique mix of professionals from the US, Asia and Pacific rim offering a platform to exchange opportunities in business and entertainment.

GIFF is the first and only annual U.S. film festival in the Western Pacific.

GIFF strives to capture the passion and spirit of independent filmmakers and their films as we showcase them to the Pacific Asia region.

The mission of the Guam International Film Festival is to foster cultural understanding through the art of cinema.

Although Pacific Asia is the core of the Guam International Film Festival, we are proud to showcase international movies from submissions worldwide.

GIFF will be presenting feature length movies and short films in the following categories:

Made in the Marianas
Student Under 18
Music Videos

The festival will take place September, 2014.
