MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Mississauga Independent Film Festival showcases the very best in only Canadian only Independent film and video. With red carpet galas, after parties, theatrical screenings, awards night and prizes MIFF does all it can to encourage the Canadian Indie filmmaker in areas other large scale National festivals don't.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Founded by two independent film makers, MIFF does all it can to be the most film maker friendly festival there is. Mostly because we know how exclusive, anonymous and unapproachable most big film festivals can seem, and that kind of environment can really frustrate and discourage an indie film maker.

Keeping submission fees less than what some festivals this size do, encouraging local talent, holding workshops with industry leaders, and keeping the festival competition all-Canadian are just some of the ways that MIFF is helping the burgeoning digital indie movement help raise the bar for what the world expects from Canadian film.

As the meeting place for the next generation of film professionals, MIFF is also taking a founding step toward eco-friendly film making, by pioneering the Film Vert initiative, in an effort to create a film festival with a zero carbon footprint.

This festival has names, faces and people who want to see your film get the exposure it needs and deserves. Between the MIFF Film Market, the festival juries stacked with professional contacts, and industry parties at and leading up to the festival, our aim is for MIFF to let you meet the people you need to get your film out there. Producers, investors, distributors, whomever you are looking to meet, MIFF is designed to get you in the door.

Film maker, we feel your pain, because we’ve been there, too.
