PBIFF was founded in 1996 by Commissioner Burt Aaronson and local philanthropist George Elmore with the vision that a film festival would offer an exciting cultural venue for the community and be a tremendous fundraiser for educational film and television programs throughout Palm Beach County schools. The PBIFF has hosted a bevy of top celebrities and filmmakers including: Academy Award® Winners Adrien Brody, Anthony Hopkins, Tommy Lee Jones, Faye Dunaway, Dennis Hopper, Louise Fletcher and Michael Caine; Academy Award® Nominees Salma Hayek, Edward Norton, Robert Evans, Sylvester Stallone, Woody Harrelson and Burt Reynolds. Along with countless other legends, stars and filmmakers that have created movie magic for the past 80 years, including: Roger Moore, Faye Wray, Esther Williams, Anouk Aimee, Samuel L. Jackson, Cyd Charisse, Richard Zanuck, William Friedkin, Brett Ratner, Jacqueline Bisset, Michael Clarke Duncan and Rod Steiger.
As a part of the on-going effort to raise the Palm Beach International Film Festival to a new level, PBIFF became a competitive forum in 2003. Annually, filmmakers selected for competition have the opportunity to receive acknowledgment for their artistic work in such categories as Best Picture, Best Documentary, Best Director, Best Actor/Actress, Best Short Film and Audience Favorite.
