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 that have showcased side-by-side with first-time DIY indie filmmakers. We’re eclectic, we keep it simple and we love film.
The Guam International Film Festival (GIFF) proudly presents an international cinema event exhibiting a dynamic source of cross-cultural artistic presence; bridging gaps among the U.S., Asia and the Pacific’s multi-cultural population and region. GIFF is the first and only annual U.S. film festival in the western pacific.
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 an eclectic mix of professionals and audiences from the US, Asia and Pacific rim offering a platform to exchange opportunities in business and entertainment.
Founded in 2011 by producers Don and Kel Muna, The Guam International Film Festival is a non-profit, community-based festival. The mission of the Guam International Film Festival is to foster the growth of cultural understanding through the art of filmmaking.
We champion the independent spirit.
