To make your screening experience unique, the Festival brings in as many filmmakers as possible. Stick around after the film whenever the filmmaker is present for a lively Q&A session. This year, more than 50 filmmakers will attend.

Spend time at the Festival Village.

Join filmmakers, other Festival guests and fellow attendees in the 1100 block of Lincoln Road every night between 6 and 10. We’re offering free shorts, previews of Festival films and the likelihood that you might run into  your favorite filmmaker. You can even make yourself a star by snapping your own VIP photos on the MIFF Stage and then Tweeting it to #MIFF12, or posting on Facebook.

Enjoy some Festival hospitality.
