Mission Statement

        The LA Harbor International Film Festival (LAHIFF), founded in 2003, is held annually with occasional special programs throughout the year often partnering with other community oriented non-profit organizations.  A non-juried, non-competitive film festival LAHIFF aims to entertain, enlighten and educate the cinematic audience by showcasing film and video that reflects the harbor and all that it embraces –  shipping and commerce, fishing, sailing, water sports, sea life and the area’s rich ethnic and cultural influences; and to promote the documentary genre via DocSunday,  literacy and a more thoughtful way to view a film through the education outreach program “Read the Book, See the Movie” – to create a cinematic  bridge between the people of the region and the people of the world.” (LAHIFF is a 501c (3) non-profit organization; Tax ID# 20 1578 165).

       Being a sponsor LAHIFF demonstrates a sense of community awareness and support of the essential mission. Partnerships between business and individuals in supporting cultural events is fundamental to perpetuate the humanity, creativity, and traits we value as citizens, and its significance can never be underestimated.
