The Phoenician International Film Festival’s mission is to celebrate the motion picture and provide a platform for filmmakers to have their work awarded and screened.
The Phoenician International Film Festival is an Independent film festival with live screenings in three cities: Paris, Lyon “France” and Beirut “Lebanon”.
The PIFF offers more than just an award , our festival offers the possibility for your work to be screened in the city where cinema was born, the City of “Les frères Lumière”. For cinema-lovers, this is where it all began, as the Cinematographe was born rue du Premier-Film, in the heart of Lyon.
Furthermore, thanks to our partnerships, the rewarded films will be seen in Beirut, Lebanon in the hopes of to promoting cinema in the middle-east.
