Maine International Film Festival: Passes and Packages Now On Sale

WATERVILLE, Maine—The Maine International Film Festival (MIFF) returns to Waterville, Maine, for its 27th edition July 12–21, 2024. Festival passes and packages are now available for preorder online at

MIFF showcases the best of American and international cinema with world premieres, classic revivals, and inspiring performances and exhibitions. Every year, the festival highlights Maine and New England’s most innovative filmmakers. With 100 films shown across 10 days, festivalgoers can travel the globe while simultaneously enjoying a uniquely local Maine experience.

Two tiers of passes are available to patrons this year: the Full Festival Pass, which grants access to individual screening ticket reservations, and the 10-Pass, which gives patrons the opportunity to fully customize their experience, picking and choosing the 10 film tickets that most speak to them. When the full festival lineup is announced at the beginning of June, passholders will be given a full week of priority ticket reservations before individual tickets go on sale to the general public.

Packages are also available for those who want to make the most of their festival experience by adopting a film, securing their passes, lining up their priority reservations, procuring their MIFF27 swag, and making a tax-deductible contribution to the festival.

“MIFF marks the most exciting 10 days of film in Maine every year,” said Mike Perreault, executive director of the Maine Film Center. “Throughout the festival, we welcome people from Maine and around the world to experience world premieres, rediscover beloved classics, and celebrate made-in-Maine films and filmmakers. Package and pass holders will have the added benefit of a week of exclusive ticket reservations once the program is announced in early June.”

This year marks MIFF’s second in the Maine Film Center’s new three-theater home, the recently opened Paul J. Schupf Art Center in downtown Waterville. Together with the Waterville Opera House, Schupf Arts will welcome thousands of movie-lovers for screenings this summer. Festivalgoers will have the opportunity to view the center’s two art galleries, enjoy live music as the Waterville Rocks series kicks off, and explore local businesses in the burgeoning downtown area.
