Mission

The Peekskill Film Festival (PFF)  was founded in 2015 to promote film literacy in the vibrant and historic Hudson River city of Peekskill, NY, and is an important opportunity to view new works by emerging filmmakers including features, shorts, documentaries, animation and student work. Through informative workshops and networking opportunities, the PFF facilitates educational and career-orientated programming for students of film and filmmakers. The PFF introduces, involves, and immerses 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 majority of ticket sales and  all sponsorships benefit the cultural programming of the Field Library, your go-to information hub for the City of Peekskill.
