Founded in 2015, the Peekskill Film Festival (PFF) screens a first-rate mix of features, shorts, documentaries and animation. In addition to screening the best and brightest in indie film, the PFF hosts workshops with Emmy-Award winning artists and filmmakers, parties, panel discussions, and an entire day dedicated to student film and animation -- all centered in the historic Paramount Hudson Valley Theater, a beautifully restored, 1,100 seat, 1930s jewel located in the heart of Peekskills arts and restaurant district.
Now in its fourth year, PFF continues to facilitate educational and career-orientated programming for students of film and filmmakers. PFF introduces, involves, and immerses youth from underserved communities into a world where they, too, can contribute and create. PFF welcomes all entries, but especially seeks to showcase habitually underrepresented filmmakers and voices.
A portion of ticket sales and all sponsorships benefit the cultural programming of the Field Library, a major information hub for the City of Peekskill.
