The People's Film Festival - MUSIC EDITION 2021 celebrates Music! Music Films, Videos and Songs. This year we collaborated with Record Drop, the new digital music platform to showcase some of the best in independent films, media, art & MUSIC. This festival will take place May 30 - June 6, 2021.

Due to recent COVID-19 updates, The People’s Film Festival is pleased to announce that will be back at the AMC Magic Johnson Theater in Harlem for our 10th edition. We will be operating at 25% capacity—following social distancing & requiring you to wear mask, however, we will continue to showcase independent films virtually through our online partner at Eventive. It is our goal to continue the work that needs to be done—essentially providing platforms for creatives to showcase their work.

We hope that you continue to support us and join us this year online for our virtual festival and at the AMC Magic Johnson Theater.

Rooted in the belief of freedom of speech and media access to all—The People’s Film Festival (TPFF) was founded in 2012 with the goal to provide venues, resources, and information for independent filmmakers, producers and creatives.
Over the last 9 years TPFF has become to be known as the “The Voice of ‘The People”—essentially the place to tell your story your way and have a true impact on that audience. TPFF’s mission is to inspire future creatives and innovators, while exposing audiences of all ages to new tools in technology for storytelling. Many of the filmmakers who screened at TPFF have broaden the outreach for their films to screen at other festivals and venues including, HBO, NetFlix, FOST, PBS- Public Broadcasting Service, Revolt TV and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Library and Archives.

The People’s Film Festival is an initiative of The People’s Media, Music & Arts Foundation (TPMMAF)—which is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation whose purpose is to promote awareness in independent film, technology, media, music, and art across the globe while encouraging those—particularly in the Harlem New York area, to develop a greater appreciation and understanding for cultural diversity in media.

The People’s Film Festival is held in Harlem, NY, which is not only known for its rich vibrant culture, historic landmarks great music, literature, arts and entertainment—also collectively known as The Harlem Renaissance, but the synergistic atmosphere in which filmmakers and filmgoers alike come comeback each year after year to actively share information, break bread and build relationships.
