In 2015, the Palm Beach International Film Festival marks its twentieth anniversary. PBIFF revolves around the mission to support emerging filmmakers. In doing so, it hosts a plethora of films, documentaries and shorts from national and international filmmakers.
March 26-April 2, 2015
The festival has screened more than 150 world premieres and more than 1,100 films total. Each year, PBIFF attracts film fans from around the world as well as celebrities, including Tommy Lee Jones, Woody Harrelson and Samuel L. Jackson. In 2014, Jill D’Agnencia’s Life Inside Out was awarded Best Feature Film and Patrick Mark’s Fabergé: A Life of its Own won Best Documentary Feature.
A not-for-profit organization, the Palm Beach International Film Festival was founded by former commissioner Burt Aaronson with the support of philanthropist George Elmore, who each saw the value in bringing a film festival to Palm Beach County, both culturally and financially. The 2015 festival marks PBIFF’s twentieth anniversary.
