Opening Night Program

March 5 | 6 PM PST

PIFF 44 Opening Night radically presented varying perspectives on what it means to be alive in this moment, while reflecting on the past that has shaped us. This multi-perspective Opening Night panorama dove deep into unexpected places, expounding upon notions of race, gender, time, and nowness. Funny, painful, powerful, and electric in equal measure, PIFF 44 Opening Night subverted the notion that any one film is worthy of “Opening Night” attention. Instead, it embraced the interplay between these six storytellers and their collaborators. 

Opening night content was viewable throughout the festival and went live at 6 PM PST on March 5th.
