Meaford International Film Festival Announces New Date and Other Changes for 2024
Nov. 1, 2024 – The Meaford Culture Foundation, organizers of the Meaford International Film Festival (MIFF), have announced new dates for MIFF 2024. The festival will move away from Labor Day weekend and be held on Sept 20-22. The festival will only be 3 days instead of 4 but show a greater variety of films. Pricing will also be new for 2024, with tickets ranging from $17 – $27.
MIFF has been bringing international, award-winning cinema and guests to Meaford Hall and has been a key fundraiser for the Meaford Culture Foundation since 2007. The event has raised funds for capital improvements to Meaford Hall and supported other arts and culture initiatives in the community.
“After 16 years, it was time to make some changes to MIFF to reflect the evolving needs of the community. We look forward to bringing MIFF to a larger audience in 2024 with great award- winning international films and guests,” said Anna den Hengst, Artistic Director, MIFF.
Full festival details and film line-up will be announced in 2024.
