One People International Film Festival

12 April 2021

One People International Film Festival (OPIFF) champions content creators from around the world regardless of their language, origin, orientation, race or religion.

The festival aims to create an intimate and collaborative space for filmmakers, holding a range of events from master classes by renowned cinema professionals, an array of international film and cutting-edge documentary programs, co-production networking opportunities and elegant red carpet premieres.

With an emphasis on showcasing films that celebrate diversity and inclusion, OPIFF’s exquisite programme of narrative, documentary and animated films will contribute in uniting communities from across the globe.

Feature films, documentaries and animated works will be selected based on their promotion of compassion, solidarity and humanism towards all peoples, especially the most vulnerable.

Thus, the One People International Film Festival will contribute to the development of cinema as an instrument of communication with the power to cultivate respect for all, by all.

In addition, Festival recognizes First, Native, and Indigenous Peoples of the world and is committed in supporting and championing filmmakers from these marginalized communities.

The Festival aims to provide a platform that showcases an inclusive ONE WORLD on its big screens.
