    Film Festival for filmmakers to filmmakers! The staff was very friendly, and the participants were also great. The only critic I have is the food can be improved at the closing night ceremony since had to pay around €200 for attending it.

    This festival is a great international, wonderful, enlightening event for me as a director – with a huge choice among features and short-films with different styles, stories, cultures, characters. Impeccable scheduling and organization by the staff. Networking and exchanges of ideas has been a pleasure in order for meeting other directors, actress and actors, and producers. I love MIFF !
