Our Story

September 25 - October 1, 2020. This is the seventh year of the exciting national and international film festival in the beautiful City of Glendale, California.

We will show films and screenplays representing or made locally by film makers from around the world. For example "From Armenia With Love", "From Mexico With Love", "From Cuba With Love." "From Latin America With Love" The theme of 2020 is bringing THE WORLD TOGETHER AS ONE!

GIFF is in its 7th year of providing a quality event for the community of Glendale and this year the emphasis is upon the worldwide audience that GIFF has gathered together in the great city of Glendale, California, making it a destination for quality film makers and screenwriters to exhibit their esteemed works. This year as before we are honoring Women Film Makers along with many awards. Our local community of Glendale harbors some of the greatest talented minds that have strayed from conventional systems to create their works. Apart from watching the films countless times within an editing room or an office, nothing topples the majesty of watching works projected on a gigantic silverscreen within the solitude of a cinema. We have been met with praise and have been awarded for our delivery by the Mayor Ara Najarian, former Mayor of Glendale (2017), Vartan Gharpetian, the 43rd Assembly District, by Laura Friedman, Supervisor Kathryn Barger and the California State Senate by Senator Anthony Portantino and we plan to do it again for the love of film making, screenwriting and bringing the cinematic arts to Glendale.

Our mission is to give the opportunity for the filmmakers and screenwriters to showcase their works as well as giving the audience unique experience in watching films that are not of the normal venue. In essence, films you might not see anywhere else.
