What I hear from our troops time and time again is that no one is telling our stories. Thank you for telling the story of the American GI. 
Gen. George W. Casey, Former Chief of Staff, U.S. Army, GIFF, 2009

The GI Film Festival, led by those who have served in uniform and their families, is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the stories of military veterans past and present. The GI Film Festival also promotes the creative work of military veteran filmmakers and helps train members of the U.S. Armed Fores for success in the entertainment industry.
