Festival Season:



The Sweet Auburn International Film Festival was created in 2006 by founder Len Gibson, the owner/curator of the African American Cinema Gallery and The Hispanic Cinema Museum. That same year, Gibson partnered with recording industry entertainment executive James “JB” Brown, who’s impressive bio dates back as early as 1989 with BET, Rain Forest Films, 20th Century Fox, BMG Records and the Island Def Jam music group, and the rest was history. The event was rebranded in 2009 as the Peachtree Village International Film Festival (PVIFF). Since its inception, PVIFF has served as the launching pad for many successful filmmakers and other artists alike in the film and entertainment industry.
