Mission / description The Palace International Film Festival (PIFF), now in its second year, and in partnership with The Palace Arts Residency, presents an intimate and diverse programme within a 700 year old Palace in Poland.

We encourage the filmmaker to be an active participant in the international Palace Arts community.
