Gasparilla Internation Film Festival

Magic is coming to Tampa on March 19th! 
The Gasparilla International Film Festival, or GIFF, is a cultural arts institution that inspires, educates and entertains through its annual celebration of film, and year round events. GIFF also does community outreach and social awareness initiatives and supports the film industry of Tampa Bay.
The 8th annual Gasparilla International Film Festival will be in town from March 19 - March 23rd celebrating the best independent film makers from around the world. 

The Film Festival is more than just watching movies. Festival-goers will have an opportunity to have Q & A sessions with filmmakers and actors. These interactive experiences occur after the films and are fascinating and rewarding. You can discover the details, film inspiration, mean and challenges from the directors, producers, screenwriters and actors. 

There are also education panels, workshops, special screenings, VIP events, etc. Some are open to the public and some require additional ticket purchases. All can be found on the schedule of events
