MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Mississippi International Film Festival is an independent festival dedicated to bringing international and other unique films to Mississippi that otherwise might not be seen here. MIFF provides a platform for filmmakers because we are film-makers. It's a showcase that honors the hard work of the filmmaker and provides a venue for his/her work to be seen and appreciated.

MIFF is a team of volunteers and produced by the Mississippi Film Institute, a 501-C-3 Corporation.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Mississippi Film Institute was incorporated in 1998.

The mission of MFI is to further a greater understanding of the art and craft of movie making to young people and others via the film festival and varied workshops.

Recently the fest was honored to have Danny Glover attend and speak at our Awards Ceremony. Each year, MFI will strive to bring in a visionary filmmaker/actor to share his/her insight with our attendees.

A cash award of US$1,000.00 will go to the submission voted the festival's overall "Best Film." This award will be dedicated to the memory of Neil Bloomer, our festival's 1st Screening Chair, who passed away in October 2011.
