Hill is set to kick off the fourth annual celebration with a performance at the Opening Night Film Premiere at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich. Aside from her status as a living legend, Hill's selection is even more fitting for this year's film festival which will highlight powerful women in the film industry with a focus on women's empowerment.

“GIFF is committed to giving female artists a strong voice this year,” Executive Director Ginger Stickel told Greenwich Time.

Proceeds from sales will reportedly be donated to Hill's charity in support of health, education, and community-centered businesses.
