Mission Statement

The Gasparilla International Film Festival is a cultural arts institution that inspires, educates and entertains through its annual celebration of film, year-round events, community outreach and social awareness initiatives, while also supporting and cultivating the film industry of Tampa Bay and Florida and making an economic impact on our region.


The Gasparilla International Film Festival ("GIFF") is one of Florida's largest and fastest growing film festivals. GIFF, organized and operated by the non-profit Tampa Film Institute, is dedicated to expanding art opportunities in the Tampa Bay community through the medium and culture of independent film. GIFF's specific mission statement is to promote opportunities for film makers and film fans alike to create and enjoy independent film in the Tampa Bay area. GIFF's most notable contribution to the community is to host an annual, competitive film festival every March in downtown Tampa and South Tampa bringing in over 100 films from around the world, with a sidebar focused on local film. GIFF also brings independent, international programming to the Tampa Bay community year-round through the prestigious Global Lens Series and other independent film screenings.
