About the Event


PUFF is more than a festival. It’s a community.

Once a year we gather in West Hollywood to celebrate and promote 50 of the world’s best up and coming filmmakers the best way we know how. By throwing a massive party and inviting all of our friends!

That means filmmakers, execs, agents, managers, casting directors, actors and actresses. Everyone that a filmmaker could be looking to meet.


PUFF is thrilled to announce Academy Award winning writer/director JOHN PATRICK SHANLEY as the Jury President for the 4th annual Picture's Up! Film Festival, taking place August 25th-27th, 2023 at The Lee Strasberg Theater in Hollywood, CA.

John's films include JOE VERSUS THE VOLCANO, MOONSTRUCK, DOUBT, and WILD MOUNTAIN THYME. Along with his Oscar for Best Screenplay for MOONSTRUCK, John has received numerous other awards including a Tony Award, Pulitzer Prize, and many more. His work has dazzled, challenged, and delighted audiences for over four decades and we are honored to have him serve as Jury President for 2023. His insight and expertise will be invaluable as he guides us in shaping this year's lineup and selecting the recipients of the coveted PUFFY Awards.
