Founded in 1998, the Maine International Film Festival (MIFF) is a project of the Maine . The 20th edition of the Maine International Film Festival will reflect a distinctive mix of premiering new American and international features and documentaries, innovative shorts programs, films made in Maine and rediscoveries and retrospectives. The 2017 program will be finalized in late June.
Film Center. 10 days, 100 films, 50 filmmakers – During the 10 days of the festival we show nearly 100 films, representing the best of American independent and international cinema. We also spotlight some of Maine and New England’s most exciting and innovative filmmakers.
Audiences also have opportunities to meet and talk with some of the people behind the movies – directors, producers, writers, musicians. Every year we honor members of the independent film industry whose contributions to cinema deserve recognition. Our honored guests and visiting filmmakers host panel discussions as well as informal Q&A sessions, giving the audiences an incredible chance to hear about the art of film from those on the front lines.
