We've just had an amazing Festival, and we couldn't have done it without all of you! An event like this is all about the community, and this year Halifax, along with the rest of Atlantic Canada, came together to deliver a world-class Film Festival.
The 34th Atlantic Film Festival would like to recognize the hard work and dedication of all its staff and volunteers. Congratulations on a phenomenal run!
A big thank you to all our wonderful sponsors - you make what we do possible!

None of this could happen if it wasn't for our loyal and loving fans and audience. The greatest satisfaction we get is watching all of you walk out of a theatre excited and smiling about the experience you've just had. That is why we do what we do, and as long as you keep coming, we'll keep doing it!
Less than a year until our 35th anniversary, and we can't wait to bring you the best of film in Atlantic Canada, the rest of the country and around the world again soon!
See you at the movies!
