With talk-back opportunities and meet ups with the filmmakers, you can understand the perspective and process of each. Our panels and workshops provide useable information and honest answers to help creatives move forward on their journey.
Our film entries incorporate stories based on universal challenges such as relationships, the family, the environment, diversity, and how we live in our worlds today...humanity is recognized and celebrated at FIIFF.
