GIFF is part of the G Biennale (GB) a major cultural event which places outstanding and significant cinema, art, theatre, dance, music, and architecture housed in rotational instances from local, national, and international contributions. Its ethos is born from a need for greater cultural innovation from hybrid online and physical events to present quirky, risky, vibrant, thought-provoking, and enriched projects within the seven nodes of celebration.
