Golden Giraffe International Film Festival - modern festival organized by young and ambitious real moviegoers. At GGIFF any filmmakers of all colors, religions, nations and genders can find there own path to real cinema.

Golden Giraffe International Film Festival (GGIFF) - is one of the most dynamic, stylish, and fastest-growing festivals worldwide for filmmakers and screenwriters looking for global recognition and exposure, based in one of the most beautiful, and classy cities in the world.

Our bi-monthly programs are made to restore enthusiasm, competitive emotions, and dignity to talented artists who have managed to create something extraordinary despite incredible obstacles, starting from a simple idea. Every two month our team of awarded filmmakers makes an "official selection" program. After that, through private screenings our jury team chooses the winners, honorable mentions, and six best works out of the bi-monthly program, that are joining our annual event. All our bi-monthly winners, honorable mentions, and special mentions receive our unique laurels and certificates. After being awarded, all artists have an opportunity to order our special named GGIFF Trophy.

Our mission is to promote, help, and to give back what too many film festivals out there have forgotten to continuously provide to the filmmakers: care and respect.

Annual Event - is what we are proud of. Our commitment is to show our best works to the big live audience in Nice, France. At the annual event we will achieve our unique Golden Giraffe Trophy's to the best works out of 36 bi-monthly winners in all main categories. Interviews, buffet, and a whole ton of great films will be waiting for you at our annual event.

    Golden Giraffe has been extremely encouraging in their review of my script, posting it on my website. I won first prize for best poster and they have set me up for a Zoom conference with their journalist to promote my poster, screenplay, and personal information about me that relates to my work. Felicie has been prompt and accommodating through numerous emails to keep me informed and pass the information on to Golden Giraffe's journalist for my interview. Thank you so much!
