Due to the rapidly escalating health crisis around COVID-19 and Governor Lamont’s recent State of Emergency Declaration, as well as his recommendation to limit the number of people at social gatherings, GIFF has made the decision to postpone all physical events for the foreseeable future. However, GIFF 2020 will still go on…online that is!
It is our pleasure to invite all of our supporters to attend the first-ever Virtual Greenwich International Film Festival, May 1st to 3rd, bringing the Festival experience into the homes of our audience members. This virtual three-day event will include an exciting selection of Narrative & Documentary Features, the Connecticut Shorts Program, exclusive interviews with film talent, acknowledgments, and a chance to Vote for the JP Morgan Chase Audience Award. It will also feature the Best Social Impact Film Award, presented by the Bill & Ann Bresnan Foundation, and the Best Connecticut Shorts Award, presented by the Connecticut Office of Film, Television & Digital Media. We remain committed to delivering a VIP experience for our passholders including programming a number of events, such as the Changemaker Gala, and a selection of exciting films, panels & receptions in the fall.
Since inception, GIFF has faced adversity head-on and pushed the boundaries of what is possible. This is unchartered territory for us, and yet an opportunity to try something new with our community of supporters, filmmakers, staff and volunteers. We hope you will join us for the virtual Festival!
