Founded in 2015, the Peekskill Film Festival (PFF) screens a first-rate mix of features, shorts, documentaries, animation, and student work. 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 collaborates with leading arts organizations including the HVCCA, The Jacob Burns Film Center, WCC, Paramount Hudson Valley Arts and the National Black Programming Consortium. The PFF seeks to introduce, involve and immerse youth from underserved communities into a world where they, too, can contribute and create. The PFF welcomes all entries, but especially seeks to showcase habitually underrepresented filmmakers.
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.
