SHOWCASE YOUR FILM ON PBS GUAM

PBS Guam and GIFF Showcase
PBS Guam and Guam International Film Festival
We are proud to announce a partnership with PBS Broadcasting’s local Guam affiliate KGTF Television Channel 12 to include an optional curation of your film to be selected in a televised PBS Guam/GIFF showcase. This is a fundraising effort to help benefit our non-profit education film programs and community outreach. It gives access to specially curated films for our local viewers outside of our annual Festival. Our past programs have included collaborations with Pixar Animation Studios, Pacific Islanders in Communications, the Guam Pacific Daily News (a Gannett company), Warner Bros. Archive and more.

If you are interested in showcasing your work on PBS Guam, simply opt in during your FilmFreeway submission process. We thank you for your continued support.

About PBS Guam
PBS GUAM is committed to serving the public interest by providing the people of Guam with quality educational and cultural programming which will not only entertain, but offer important information about the world around us. We have an obligation to maintain an honest, professional and open relationship with our community. To accomplish this mission, our goal must be one of providing alternatives to current commercial television, providing educational assistance to our classrooms, and serving the interest not only of the majority, but the minority as well.

We seek the means to inform the public of the importance of public broadcasting, and to secure the support, both financial and moral from the public we serve.

We offer viewers—from every walk of life—the opportunity to explore new ideas and new worlds through television and online content. Nationally, PBS reaches more than 120 million people through television and nearly 21 million people online, inviting them to experience the worlds of science, history, nature and public affairs; to hear diverse viewpoints; and to take front row seats to world-class drama and performances.
