Directors Hugh Welchman and Dorota Kobiela with the Pomme d’Or, MIFF 2018 People’s Choice Award.
It’s a wrap! MIFF 2018 has come and gone…
Thank you for making MIFF 2018 a big success! It’s fantastic to welcome new patrons from near and far to our festival. As well as seeing so many familiar faces. 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.
I want to thank our guests; artist Val Fulford, musician, artist, author Tom Wilson and film critic Karen Gordon for making the interviews interesting, informative and entertaining.
The People’s Choice award The Pomme d’Or went to Loving Vincent, a film by Hugh Welchman and Dorota Kobiela of Poland/UK.
We had four incredible student films from the Grey Bruce Youth Film Festival. Two films made by Indigenous students Kaitrina Harrison Thunder Finder and James Schlonies Animkee. Stolen Children by Meaford student Megan Acres and Top Ten by Jenna Bloodworth, Nick Murray and Bruno rounded out the student films.
To the restauranteurs who catered our four delicious meals and after parties, thank you. To our very generous sponsors we also thank you. To the staff of Meaford Hall, thank you for your hard work. To all our volunteers a truly heartfelt thank you for making MIFF an incredible experience for everyone.
We all look forward to seeing you at MIFF 2019!

Meaford Culture Foundation has presented Miff since 2007
For over a decade, the Meaford 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 $177k 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.
