The 2021 Piermont Film Festival will be a fully vaccinated event only. Bring your vaccination card!
A small film festival in even smaller rooms. Beautiful Piermont on the Hudson serves as the backdrop for this new, exciting film festival. Located just 13 miles north of the George Washington Bridge, the festival is easily accessible for all in NYC, with picturesque upstate NY village charm, on the Hudson River. The Village of Piermont has been featured in such films as, "The Purple Rose of Cairo" and "At First Sight" and representation on the small screen includes, "The Blacklist" and "Law & Order". The festival will feature screenings with Q and A's, outdoor musicians and special guests. This event is free to the public. No pets.
The PFF's winners from the 2020 film festival will also be included in screenings. They were postponed due to COVID-19.

The awards are Laurels. Monetary amounts and additional prizes to be determined later.
