About San Pedro International Film Festival
The San Pedro International Film Festival was founded to celebrate the diverse culture and community of San Pedro with a wide spectrum of independent film, documentaries, and shorts. SPIFF is committed to exhibiting films that embody inspiring entertainment for all. Works that express fresh voices and differing global perspectives, with the intent that these films enlighten audiences while providing invaluable exposure for filmmakers, local and international.
The San Pedro International Film Festival’s mission is two-fold: – To help promote and develop the exhibition of media arts to audiences in and around San Pedro by presenting a forum for film festival professionals and filmmakers; – To make the international community aware of San Pedro as both a film festival forum and event destination, film production destination, and to promote the works of international and local filmmakers to an international and domestic audience.
With the objective of supporting the development of local filmmakers and actors, as well as enriching local audiences, SPIFF will offer a series of workshops, panel discussions and presentations. The San Pedro International Film Festival will endeavor to collaborate with other festivals and film organizations and encourage education of new technological advancements that make filmmaking accessible to everyone. SPIFF will aim to encourage young people to enjoy films as well as develop their interest in filmmaking careers. SPIFF will organize “youth in film” workshops to further encourage and educate young people interested in film, with potential grants and loans of digital equipment.
