The Greenwich International Film Festival is a nonprofit organization that launched a world-class film festival in Greenwich this weekend. It was founded to bridge the worlds of film, finance, and philanthropy.
The festival’s mission is to provide filmmakers with the opportunity to showcase their work with the goal of finding financing and distribution. Additionally, GIFF will harness the power of film to serve the greater good by supporting the U.S. Fund for UNICEF with proceeds from the festival. The four-day festival featured more than 25 carefully curated films, an opening night party, panels, receptions, and an honoree gala. The festival, and its supporting events throughout the year, will help to create a burgeoning visual arts community in Greenwich and beyond.
