PRESS RELEASE:

PLYMOUTH, MA - The Plymouth Independent Film Festival, entering its third year, is a compelling success story. If you are a filmmaker this is your opportunity to get your film out there and seen. Attendance has reached nearly 5,000 in each of PIFF’s first two seasons. This year the festival expects the number to grow. Previous festival attendees included award winning filmmakers, Oscar nominated animators and international documentarians as well as film producers, production staff, actors and the media.

Last year 110 films were shown and six films won in the categories of Best Feature, Best Short, Best Environmental, Best Diversity, Best Student (long) and Best Student (short). The Plymouth Independent Film Festival also awards a yearly Spirit Award and an Honorary Award.

Your film could take home one of the coveted PIFF Awards.
