The Piton International Film Festival "Global 2021" (PIFF) is a 12-month initiative that focuses on celebrating filmmaking and seeks to work collaboratively with filmmakers globally. PIFF 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- Global 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

• Celebrating filmmaking in its various forms

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