Guam International Film Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to foster the growth of cultural understanding through the art of filmmaking. We achieve this by providing free film education, promoting cultural understanding throughout our communities, and assisting in the establishment of a local industry of motion picture. GIFF achieves this through community outreach, education through festival workshops and efforts to build awareness for social responsibility through our film programming.
