2008 GI Film Festival

Another WestPointer doing great things. Laura Law-Millett is the Co-Founder & Director of the GI Film Festival.

The GI Film Festival (GIFF), a 501 c(3) non-profit organization, is the first film festival in the nation to exclusively celebrate the successes and
sacrifices of the American military through the medium of film.

The GIFF will present films from new and established international and domestic filmmakers that honor the heroic stories of the American Armed Forces and the worldwide struggle for freedom and liberty. Some of the films screened will be fan favorites. Others will be screened for the first time. All will in some way express the courage and selflessness of our fighting men and women and the value of their work.

The GI Film Festival is open to filmmakers of every experience level, from first-timers to veteran directors and producers. Prizes will be awarded to winners of three main categories: feature, documentary, and film shorts.

In addition to presenting feature, documentary, and short film screenings, the GIFF will also present panel discussions, educational forums and special events, including:

Movie screenings by international and domestic filmmakers.

Awards presentation featuring a special celebrity major motion picture screening.

"War Stories" educational panel featuring untold personal stories of heroism from the front lines.

Kick-off cocktail party and VIP award ceremony

Press junket, exhibitions, Hollywood "meet and greets," and
