Creative Producing Projects with recipients of PUFF Indie Awards 

 

PUFF plays a different role in each of the films that we support.  In one project, we obtained a crucial sponsor for a new film, in another project PUFF connected a filmmaker with a potential actor,  yet in another project PUFF is one of the initiator in a fund raising event.

 

PUFF provides local knowledge and recommend film crews and technicians.  This is most important for the less connected or advantageous groups. Most recently, PUFF started a VR gaming project to coincides with the release of a new film.    

 

Every filmmaker needs a good partner to make their dreams come true.
