Founded in 2015, the Peekskill Film Festival (PFF) screens a first-rate mix of features, shorts, documentaries, and animation. In addition to screening the best and brightest in indie film, the PFF hosts workshops with Emmy-Award winning artists and filmmakers, parties, panel discussions, and an entire day dedicated to student film -- all centered in the historic Hudson Valley Paramount Theater, a beautifully restored, 1,100 seat, 1930’s jewel located in the heart of Peekskill’s arts and restaurant district.

Come for a single movie, a day, or the whole weekend. We welcome you to Peekskill, our diverse and glorious Hudson River city, a thriving arts community just under an hour from NYC.

The PFF is pleased to showcase NY filmmakers in our "New York State of Mind" block on Saturday, where all films featured are proudly made in the Empire State.

Diverse voices from the world over are welcome. We especially encourage underrepresented voices, films, and subjects including women, POC, and the LGBTQ+ community.

A portion of proceeds and all sponsorships benefit the cultural programming of The Field Library. The PFF and its filmmakers strive to provide scholarship and and filmmaking opportunities for underprivileged filmmakers.

OUR CREDO: Through informative workshops, and networking opportunities, The PFF will facilitate educational and career-oriented programming for students of film and filmmakers. The festival hopes to introduce, involve and immerse youth from underserved communities to a world where they, too, can contribute and create.

Our Purpose:
Give up and coming filmmakers, writers, actors and producers a chance for their work to be shown in a festival setting,
Provide exposure to award- winning films and performers who reflect the diversity of the city of Peekskill,
Promote film literacy through workshops and lectures, providing participants a chance to see important, overlooked, and often excluded works of film.
Start dialogues. Create. Network!

Festival Specifics:
Tickets: $15. Discounted weekend passes available
