The MIFF EXPERIENCE

CREATIVE DIRECTOR JOANNE MCKENZIE A Joanne McKenzie

Christopher Thomas has handed the microphone over to me… 

As I look forward to the challenge of being the fourth Artistic Director, I can’t help but wonder, will anyone buy a ticket?How hard can it be to select four award winning films that people will want to see, yikes!  The essence of MIFF is showing award winning films from all over the world that will captivate the audience. Through documentaries, fiction and true life stories you will experience life from someone else’s perspective. Art is subjective, whether it’s music, on canvas or on film. Each Artistic Director of MIFF selects films for different reasons, but the objective remains the same; enlighten, educate and entertain. I’ve been fortunate to have Christopher as my mentor.  The films chosen this year really touched me. When I watch a movie, I want it to make me laugh, cry, feel warm and fuzzy or shocked. The four films I’ve selected this year have done just that.  Meaford Hall is home to MIFF, we are so fortunate to have a venue like this in our community and this year, our 11th season, will be celebrated by enjoying the recently renovated balcony. Comfy seats for everyone!  MIFF is put on by the Meaford Hall & Culture Foundation, the proceeds generated from this event stay in our community. None of this would be possible without the dedicated volunteers who spend countless hours putting MIFF together.

Please sit back and enjoy your festival!
