GIFF GOES VIRTUAL. FREE LIVE STREAMING+TV with PBS GUAM

This year we are proud to partner with PBS Broadcasting’s local Guam affiliate KGTF Television Channel 12 to deliver our stories to a global audience. Due to the COVID-19 government directives regarding the restriction of public gatherings in public places, we are going totally virtual with the 2020 edition of GIFF’s official programming lineup via FREE online streaming and a one-time local television broadcast provided by PBS Guam. This collaboration provides access to specially curated films for our local viewers as well as diaspora abroad. Our past programs have included collaborations with Pixar Animation Studios, Pacific Islanders in Communications, the Guam Pacific Daily News (a Gannett company), Warner Bros. Archive and more.

 

About PBS Guam
PBS GUAM is committed to serving the public interest by providing the people of Guam with quality educational and cultural programming which will not only entertain, but offer important information about the world around us. We have an obligation to maintain an honest, professional and open relationship with our community. To accomplish this mission, our goal must be one of providing alternatives to current commercial television, providing educational assistance to our classrooms, and serving the interest not only of the majority, but the minority as well.

We seek the means to inform the public of the importance of public broadcasting, and to secure the support, both financial and moral from the public we serve.

We offer viewers—from every walk of life—the opportunity to explore new ideas and new worlds through television and online content. Nationally, PBS reaches more than 120 million people through television and nearly 21 million people online, inviting them to experience the worlds of science, history, nature and public affairs; to hear diverse viewpoints; and to take front row seats to world-class drama and performances.
