THE ATLANTIC FILM FESTIVAL - SEPT 11th to 18th, 2014

The Atlantic Film Festival (AFF) is an eight-day celebration of film, media and music from around the world. It’s a festival that turns Halifax – a charming and historic coastal city – into an international Mecca for the arts, abuzz with filmmakers, industry types and film lovers. 

Offering a first-look at the best international films of the festival season, the AFF is a champion of local filmmakers, committed to bridging the gap. We attract some of the biggest players in film, media and music from around the world. All of our film selections are chosen with our community in mind and our special events are designed to bring us all together. A not-for-profit organization, the AFF depends heavily upon its strong ties to the surrounding and thriving arts community.

The AFF began as a tiny, grassroots operation in St. John’s, Newfoundland in 1981, relocating to Halifax the following year. Just three decades later, the AFF has blossomed into one of Canada’s premier film festivals. Whether for industry folk, unabashed film lovers or curious onlookers, the AFF offers a slew of opportunities to engage through film. Today’s Atlantic Film Festival is now a year-round celebration, growing beyond our eight-day cornerstone event in September to include:

Atlantic Film Festival - 150+ films from Atlantic Canada and around the world, Industry Events, Script Development Program, Retrospectives, Parties & Receptions

Strategic Partners - Co-production market, 200 top industry players, 1-2-1 meetings, keynotes, panels, Trans Atlantic Partners - TAP (international co-production mentoring program), Cannes Producers Network Reception

ViewFinders Atlantic Film Festival for Youth - Curriculum based film & workshop program, Hands-on workshops, Masterclass and discussions with top industry professionals, ViewFinders Productions, Festival in a Van
