Compelling. Provocative. Thrilling. Empowering.
These are the adjectives that describe the films that play in the minds of tomorrow’s great filmmakers. Greenwich International Film Festival aims to celebrate these gifted artists annually and to promote Greenwich, Connecticut, as a film and visual arts epicenter. The inaugural Greenwich International Film Festival (GIFF) event will take place June 4th through 7th, 2015. The Festival’s supporting workshops, seminars and screenings throughout the year will cultivate a burgeoning visual arts community in Greenwich and beyond. The Greenwich International Film Festival (GIFF) was founded by Carina Crain, Colleen deVeer, and Wendy Stapleton Reyes to bridge the worlds of film, finance, and philanthropy.
