Pembroke Taparellli Arts and Film Festival

The Pembroke Taparellli Arts and Film Festival was founded as a means to provide independent artists committed to social justice with a place through which to share their work with the global community. The festival seeks to give a platform to artists who seek to use their voice in film, theatre, spoken word, painting, sculptor, and photography to bring to light such issues as, poverty, gender inequality, homelessness, hunger, physical and psychological abuse, racism, sex trafficking, war and grief.

PTAFF is a celebration of Domestic and International Artists (Filmmakers, Performers, visual artists) who are committed to fostering global change through the Arts.  The PTAFF celebrates those fearless artists who are willing to share the good, the bad, and the ugly of our times holding themselves accountable for the change they desire to see.

The Festival is currently scheduled to take place November 7- November 10 at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. In addition to its roster of films, the Festival will include a fine arts exhibition, a panel discussion on the Festival’s theme, a screenplay competition, and the presentation of a play from Nigeria, Wedlock of the Gods.

Awards and prizes will be given to films in the following categories:

  • Best Narrative Feature (Domestic and International)
  • Best Documentary (Domestic and International)
  • Best Short
  • Best Screenplay
