About GFF: The annual Gallup Film Festival was founded in 2012 by performing artist, Knifewing Segura. GFF believes stories shape and transform who we are and what we do both individually and collectively. We produce, promote and present socially conscious media in addition to our annual festival of film and the related arts, which celebrates the art of being human and the craft of being an artist and storyteller. We strive to work with filmmakers, storytellers, artists, musicians and change makers to bring about a more tolerant and compassionate world. We do this through the responsible use of community resources-producing educational workshops, lectures and screenings-all while representing the unique character of the Southwest.
