When is the 2015 John Paul II International Film Festival?
The 5th edition of the JP2IFF will take place October 8th-17th, 2015.

When do you announce your films?
Our complete film program can be found here.

How do I submit my film?
Visit our Submission Page  for complete details.

How do you select your films?
Films are submitted by their filmmakers and arrive to us from around the globe. Once arrived, filmmakers are notified and our film panel and directors select the best films based on our submission guidelines. After the final submission deadline, filmmakers wait about a month before finding out if their film is a part of our Official Selection.

Are you a Catholic Film Festival?
No. Though our inspiration for the festival is John Paul II, the film festival takes after his unifying human-rights values. We receive and select films from different religious and cultural backgrounds to show through our films each year that our struggles and our triumphs are one in the same. In the end, learning more about the faiths and cultures of our neighbors allow us to become better members of our community and, ultimately, our human family.
