"My reason is simply wanting to provide a platform for those wishing to use their artistic voice for social change."

- Michelle Andrea Smith, PTAFF Founder

Pembroke Taparelli Arts and Film Festival is dedicated to the discovery and presentation of emerging artists, giving them an opportunity to let their voices be heard around the world.

The festival is an intersection between art and social justice giving independent artists a place to create, thrive and bring to market work they are passionate about. Artists are allowed to take risk, tell their stories as they work to change the world.

We are excited to introduce our new charitable partner Amnesty International. We seek to support and aide artists as they help to transform, save, and change the lives of those who suffer in order to create a sense of hope to fuel their struggle.
