The Piton International Film Festival "PIFF Africa 2024" is a 12-month initiative that focuses on "FILMS SHOT IN AFRICA ONLY", celebrating filmmaking, and seeks to work collaboratively with filmmakers globally. PIFF Africa is unique in that its focus is on education, collaboration, and celebration, instead of competition. Hence, filmmakers will be able to work together to inspire and influence the global community in a positive and uplifting manner.

The focus of PIFF Africa includes...
• Addressing the various aspects of the billion-dollar industry known as filmmaking
• Understanding filmmaking from "in front of the camera to behind the camera" through workshops and seminars
• Assisting independent filmmakers with opportunities to expose and monetize their creative artworks
• Celebrating filmmaking in its various forms

PIFF Africa is a family-friendly event that encourages unity within families, giving them an opportunity to watch, discuss, learn, and enjoy films together.
