The Peekskill Film Festival May 13 - 14, 2016
VISIT http://peekskillfilmfestival.org for updated LISTINGS!
The Peekskill Film Festival (PFF) was founded in 2015 to promote film literacy in the vibrant and historic Hudson River city of Peekskill, NY, and is an important opportunity to view new works by emerging  filmmakers, including features, shorts, documentaries, animation and student work.  In 2016, the PFF will also concentrate on Black and Hispanic filmmakers and themes, featuring films sorely overlooked in more conventional festivals. Through informative workshops, and networking opportunities, The PFF will facilitate educational and career-oriented programming for students of film and filmmakers.  The festival hopes to introduce, involve and immerse youth from underserved communities of color to a world where they, too, can contribute and create.

We want the world  to come out and see homegrown talent, and our youth to learn valuable tools in the art of filmmaking. We want people to see film that they wouldn't necessarily have access to while learning about the heritage and the journey of their immigrant neighbors. We want people to learn about our community, about our beautiful city : our library, our art, our bodegas, our restaurants, our theaters, our clubs, our woods, our schools, our riverfront, our people.   We want everyone  to learn about Peekskill, and see all that we have going on!

Our Purpose:
Give up and coming filmmakers, writers, actors and producers a chance for their work to be shown in a festival setting,

Provide  exposure to award winning films and performers who reflect the diversity of the city of Peekskill ;

Promote film literacy through workshops and lectures,  providing participants  a chance to see important, overlooked, and often excluded works of film,

Start dialogues. Create. Network!

Festival Specifics:
Tickets: $10.  Proceeds to benefit the cultural programming of The Field Library, the major source of information for the City of Peekskill.
