Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning is partnering with the first-ever Rogers Punjabi International Film Festival (PIFF). The college will host screenings of a variety of feature films and short films and documentaries at its North campus on May 19 and 20, 2012. A series of speaking panels and workshops will also be held.
PIFF will feature a lineup of international feature films, short films and documentaries from around the world on themes of Punjabi culture and identity. Overall, PIFF will include gala events, film parties, concerts, workshops, seminars and other activities as it celebrates South Asian Heritage Month and the Punjabi community in the GTA at institutions such as Humber College.
“Hosting PIFF is a natural fit for the college given our highly acclaimed film degree and diploma programs, and our diverse community. We are pleased to welcome PIFF and to help celebrate Punjabi culture at Humber,” said Rani Dhaliwal, VP Finance and Administrative Service, Humber College.
In addition to Humber, PIFF’s institutional partners include the Mississauga Arts Council and the Brampton Board of Trade.
