 2017 PROGRAMMING COMMITTEE

 

The HIFF 2017 Programming Committee is a paid committee comprised of local filmmakers and cinephiles. The committee has been meeting monthly since the fall of 2016 to select the visiting filmmaker content for the festival. The committee watched dozens of features and short films in order to select content for the festival that is diverse, bold and contributes to the advancement of the discourse of cinema. 

The Programming Committee is comprised of Dawn George, Daniel Boos, Zack Miller and Tori Fleming. 

 
 

ATLANTIC AUTEURS JURY

Every year, HIFF assembles a jury of local filmmakers to watch hours of work by filmmakers from Atlantic Canada. The jury is an arms-length body which is separate from regular AFCOOP staff and committees and is facilitated by the Festival Coordinator. 

Submissions to the Atlantic Auteurs program are open to filmmakers based in, or born in Atlatnic Canada. 

This year's jury included Jeff Wheaton, Ruby Boutilier and David Stewart.
