The Festival features events and special screening blocks  throughout the month at three different  locations celebrating the service of the men and women in the US military and providing a thoughtful look at their lives and sacrifices.  The GI Film Festival (GIFF) Women Warriors Film Block will screen the following films:

    • Reunion: After returning from last deployment, Karen comes home and has a struggle with reconnecting with her daughter who lives with her ex-husband and another woman
    • This Is Me: A 25-year-old veteran recalls enduring emotional and physical pain during boot camp in order to maintain a secret, which crippled and identified her existence for 17 years.
    • Call Me Ma’am: The short is a visual expression of what it was like to be a new Navy officer from a woman’s point of view.
    • After Fire: Set in the military outpost of San Antonio, Texas, AFTER FIRE highlights the challenges faced by the fastest-growing group of American veterans: women, who now account for one in five new recruits to the U.S. Armed Forces.

GIFF transcends the world of film festivals by creating a true community where passionate filmmakers, our veterans and those who support them can gather for a few magical days to educate, heal and preserve the legacies of our veterans.

The GI Film Festival (GIFF), a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 2006 by Army veteran Laura Law-Millett and her husband Brandon Millett, is dedicated to preserving the stories of American veterans past and present through film, television and live special events. GIFF’s flagship festival, held each May in Washington, DC is now entering its 11th season.
