    Don't be fooled... MIFF appears as a small Festival, but it has absolutely nothing to envy some prime league ones.
    We were lucky enough to be selected, and luckier to be able to attend the whole Fest.
    The organization puts a great deal of care and attention, and affection, to what they do and how they do it, at every single level - Honestly, one positive, great and pleasant surprise.
    We were delighted with absolutely everything, and looking forward to repeat in the future!
