ARTISTIC DIRECTOR JOANNE MCKENZIE
Welcome to the 12th season of the Meaford International Film Festival!
If you’ve never had the MIFF experience why not give it a go this year? Take a chance and see a film that you might normally pass by, challenge yourself. There are 4 award winning films to choose from, plus our fun Thursday matinee.
Hopefully you manage to secure a dinner reservation and enjoy a delicious meal before heading inside for the film.
Each evening begins with a student film chosen from The Grey Bruce Youth Film Festival, then the feature film followed by a guest interview. Afterwards make your way down the red carpet to party in the big tent! Mingle with friends, talk about the movie you’ve just seen and don’t forget to enter the MIFF trivia contest.
The 4 award winning films I’ve selected this year come from all over the globe; Poland/UK, Canada, Germany and Chile. A story told through paintings, musicians with a secret, senseless killings and a woman who wants respect.
Meaford Hall is home to MIFF, we are so fortunate to have a venue like this in our community. MIFF is put on by the *Meaford Culture Foundation, a not for profit organization run entirely by volunteers. The proceeds generated from this event stay in our community to help support arts & culture. None of this would be possible without our dedicated volunteers who spend countless hours putting MIFF together, and our generous sponsors.
Please sit back and enjoy your festival!
*Meaford Culture Foundation has presented Miff since 2007
For over a decade, the Meaford Hall & Culture Foundation’s mission has been to raise funds for Meaford Hall capital expenditures as well as arts and culture. Since 2008, our Community Outreach program has allocated $174,000 to art, music, literacy, theatre, film and cultural awareness. The majority of these dollars has assisted community child and youth activities. More than 1000 local students benefit from this program yearly. Moreover, Meaford Hall plays a pivotal role as the venue for the groups that benefit from our annual funding and bursaries. The newly branded *Meaford Culture Foundation will continue its support of capital improvements at the Hall as well as arts & culture which, this year includes sponsorship of the new Meaford Hall Summer Theatre plays. Our main fundraisers are MIFF (Meaford International Film Festival) and the Online Auction in October. We welcome volunteers from the community to help out. We are very fortunate to have a generous and supportive community of sponsors and donors for our fund raisers. For more information about us, visit our website mhcfoundation.ca.
