What’s It All About?

The Palm Beach International Film Festival (PBIFF) was founded with a view to offering an exciting cultural venue for the community and being a fundraiser for educational film and television programmes throughout Palm Beach County schools. To raise the festival to a new level, PBIFF became a competitive forum in 2003. Annually, filmmakers selected for competition have the opportunity to receive acknowledgment for their artistic work in several categories as Best Picture, Best Documentary, Best Director, Best Actor/Actress, Best Short Film and Audience Favourite.

For the last 12 years, the festival has showcased thousands of award-winning films, hosted filmmakers, actors, industry professionals and the press from around the globe.

This year, the fest has a highly anticipated film line-up for the current edition, featuring 14 World Premieres, eight North American and eight US Premieres. PBIFF will present features, documentaries and short films from the US and around the world, including Brazil, Venezuela, France, England, Israel, Hong Kong, Japan, India, New Zealand, Austria, the Philippines, Croatia, Australia, Canada, Germany and South Korea. It will also host filmmakers, producers and actors to represent and discuss their films.
