Phuket International Film Festival is a live screening film festival. The live screening takes place at different prestigious venues.
Phuket has emerged as a prime place for film production among the South East Asian countries. Phuket has a large Chinese influence, so you will see many Chinese shrines and Chinese Restaurants around the City. While the Chinese community is quite big, there are many other ethnicities bringing all their traditions and festivals from all over the world to Phuket.
Being a big Island, Phuket is surrounded by many magnificent Beaches such as Rawai, Patong, Karon, Kamala, and Mai Khao. Laem Phromthep view point is said to feature the most beautiful sunsets in Thailand.
Thailand being a land of eclectic cultures is no secret. But what might come as a surprise to some is that every place within the country has its own distinct culture that defines it. Phuket being the most popular destinations in Thailand as well as the world, for evidence of this. With arms wide open, Phuket beckons its visitors to come immerse themselves in the land's customs of warm hospitality, rich heritage and colourful traditions, which create an alluring atmosphere that is hard not to fall in love with. One of the most important aspects of the culture in Phuket is its elaborate tradition of performative arts.

Introduction

PIFF is a monthly live screening film festival. Each month more than 50 films from the different categories are officially selected and out of them, at least one per category is awarded. Most representatives are monthly screened at a prestigious venue in Phuket and are rated on their respective IMDB pages (if applicable). All these monthly winners are automatically qualified for the annual live screening gala in the Hilly Island and can be nominated for the prestigious Annual Gala (the best of the best). The annual event is a glamorous red carpet premiere with press conferences and gala parties in Phuket in the presence of international movie celebrities and media. The participants have excellent opportunities to exchange their ideas, ideologies and cultural diversities. The winners have a chance to meet with the audience and participate in Q&A after the screening for a healthy discussion about the film.
PIFF has a unique model, which is nothing like any other film festivals you have ever heard of before. We provide a genuine opportunity to filmmakers, right from the submission level. It includes introductions to regional and international sales agents, distributors and talent managers. PIFF's aim is to help you launch your professional career within the film industry - showcasing your work around the world, building press coverage, exposing you to sales agents, distributors, global production companies, talent agencies, and worldwide producers. The festival welcomes work from all over the world. We expect to receive films with courage, personable endeavour and unique voices.
