Pembroke Taparelli Arts and Film Festival

welcomes our 2017 ambassador Mr. Bill Cobbs

PTAFF was a great experience for our film team. Like all other films at the festival, our film screened in a studio theater with absolutely amazing sound and picture quality. The staff was very responsive and helpful in the weeks leading up to the festival and during the festival. PTAFF is one of the only festivals on the West Coast specifically geared towards social justice films. I hope it will stick around for many years to come. Since this year was the first annual event, they are still building up their visibility. In the future I would encourage activist filmmakers to submit to this festival and then to invest time into reaching out to the media and many organizations in the L.A. area to make sure you get a strong turnout for your film (i.e., help the festival to promote your film).
