The MIFF EXPERIENCE
Thank you for making this the most successful MIFF to date, more patrons came to see the movies then ever before. It’s good to know that people have not lost their desire to see films on the big screen. The positive feedback has been overwhelming. Each film shown offered something for everyone from Maudie’s story of perseverance, to living under communism in The Teacher. I am The Blues showed us that making music with soul is not about the money and finally A Man called Ove showed us we have much to learn about our fellow human beings. We all have a story.
I want to thank our guests Henk Van der Kolk, Paul Wilson/Christopher Thomas and Daniel Cross for taking the time. All of the interviews were interesting, informative and fun. The Pomme d’or People’s Choice award went to Sweden’s Hannes Holm’s film A Man called Ove.
It was exciting to have a student film from one of Meaford’s own, but all four of the films were incredible.
To the restaurants who catered our four delicious meals and after parties, thank you. To our very generous sponsors, thank you. To Meaford Hall staff, thank you. To the many volunteers of MIFF a heartfelt thank you for making this an incredible experience for everyone.
Finally, to all of you who bought a movie ticket, we thank you! We all look forward to seeing you at MIFF 2018!
