The mission of the Atlanta Independent Film Festival (AIFF) is to advance the vitality and diversity of Independent film by nurturing artists, encouraging repeatable creative relationships, and offering filmgoers the gift of engaging storytelling that meets them where they are today. The Atlanta Independent Film Festival and Pinch 'n' Ouch Theatre preserve an ethic of mutual respect for works that are derived from a sense of truth.
