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:

Narrative
Documentary
Animation
Made in the Marianas
Student Under 18
Music Videos

The festival will take place September, 2014.

THE 2ND ANNUAL GUAM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL - PRESENTED BY DFS GALLERIA

Guam - The 2nd Annual Guam
International Film Festival Presented by DFS Galleria will take place from
Thursday, September 27 through Sunday, September 30, 2012 at the Micronesia
Mall Stadium Theatres and Zen Ultra Lounge in Tumon Bay.

 

With over 3000 attendees at last year’s event, Guam International
Film Festival (GIFF) is focusing their efforts in engaging, educating and
entertaining Guam’s diverse communities by showcasing culturally relevant
films. “One thing I’m most excited about for this year’s event is bringing
together people of different cultures and all walks of life.” says GIFF
Executive Director, Don Muna. GIFF has had over 160 international films
submitted from 27 different countries in 2012. Including films from Guam, the Marshal
Islands, and the Pacific Asia region.

The mission of the Guam International Film Festival is to engage,
educate, entertain and promote Guam’s diverse communities to the world.
“I  believe GIFF has the potential to be one of the island’s most anticipated
international events that promote Guam as a premier travel
destination in the Pacific Asia region.” says Francis Guerrero, Senior Manager
of Promotions and Community Affairs at DFS Galleria.

The four day festival will feature special events including film
screenings from guest filmmakers from the Philippines, Japan and Guam,
filmmaking workshops conducted by industry professionals, events and an award
ceremony.

Festival guests scheduled to attend are acclaimed Japanese
director Kazuhiro Soda (Winner of the Best Documentary award at the 35th Hong
Kong International Film Festival), award-winning Filipino director Benito
Bautista (Winner of the NETPAC Best Picture Award), GIFF Jurors Tom
Brislin, Ph.D. (Fulbright Scholar and Chair, Academy of Creative Media,
University of Hawaii at Manoa) and Gabrielle Kelly (Fulbright Scholar and NYU
Tisch Asia Associate Arts Professor, Board Member for the British Academy of
Film and Television).

“GIFF is well on its way to becoming one of the notable film
festivals in Pacific Asia; as we’ve seen an increase of high-profile entries
from more countries and submissions from both internationally acclaimed
filmmakers and emerging local filmmakers”, says Kel Muna, GIFF Program
Director.

“We have also expanded our programming with a film exchange from Japan’s ‘Short
Shorts Film Festival’, which is an Academy-Award qualifying film festival.
Plus, we’re still showcasing films from University of Hawaii’s Academy for
Creative Media.

"We believe wholeheartedly in the Guam International Film
Festival. It celebrates talent from around the world, including right here in
the Marianas. For an entire weekend, Guam and our visitors are able to feast on
international films - short and long - that show the diversity, creativity, and
passion of so many filmmakers." Jennifer Camacho, Director of Business
Development at Cars Plus.

The Guam International Film Festival would like to acknowledge our
sponsors that continue to support and recognize the impact of social
responsibility through the arts: DFS Galleria, Cars Plus, United Airlines,
Docomo Pacific, Peroni, Patron X.O. Cafe, Guam Visitors Bureau, Sorenson Media
