JOIN US AT TIGLFF

With over 63 films  from almost twenty different countries across the world, as well as productions created right here in the Tampa Bay area, this year’s festival appeals to diverse interests and filmgoers.

With the Festival we get exclusive premieres of the stories that matter to us, and we get to experience them in one another’s presence. This is a special time indeed.
