Los Angeles, CA – The annual Pan Pacific Film Festival (PPFF) brings together a forum of movie industry professionals and cinephiles to share stories of redemption and transformation. The international event draws a unique and diverse audience of filmmakers and filmgoers who seek encouragement and support for the production of positive family and/or faith audience films.
Held annually in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, this year’s 6th annual film festival event will be held in the Aratani Community Center (JACCC) in Los Angeles, CA through July 24 - 26, 2014.
This year’s event is co-hosted by actress Jenn Gotzon & Dr. Drake Travis.

Dr. Travis is currently the Director of Global Ambassadors for The Resurrection Project and is the author of two published works including Christ Our Healer Today and Healing Power: Voice Activated. He is currently working on a new talk show called “The High Road”, which is scheduled to be produced by end of this year.

Each night, PPFF will host a red carpet event featuring some of Hollywood’s most influential professionals, along with the movie premiers of Jackson’s Run and Footprints (Friday) and God’s Eye View and Apostle (Saturday).
The opening night of the festival features an awards ceremony celebrating excellence in independent filmmaking.
