Teaneck International Film Festival
2017 Sponsors
The Puffin Foundation Since its founding in 1983, The Puffin Foundation Ltd. has sought to open the doors of artistic expression by providing grants to artists and art organizations who are often excluded from mainstream opportunities due to their race, gender, or social philosophy. The Puffin's mission is to ensure that the arts continue to grow and enrich our lives.
Arts & History Funding has been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, through grant funds administered by the Bergen County Department of Parks, Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs.
