From everyone at HIFF, thank you for making our 13th annual festival such a success! What an incredible four days of films, community, conversation, and unforgettable Q&As. Best HIFF yet? That's for future generations to decide!

HIFF wouldn't be possible without the hard work of our dedicated volunteers, the generous support of our sponsors and community partners, and an amazing audience that makes our city such an inviting destination for visiting filmmakers and programmers. 

Thank you, thank you! And see you back at HIFF next year.

About HIFF

Now in its 13th year, HIFF provides a unique venue for filmmakers and media artists to share their work in a forum dedicated to the celebration of independent cinema. Since its inception, HIFF has showcased the Atlantic region's most innovative works alongside the films of acclaimed visiting artists. As a filmmaker's festival, HIFF brings the directors of the works we show to Halifax in order to create opportunities for them to connect directly with audiences and local artists through hosted Q+A's, artist talks and workshops. HIFF also presents a number of professional development initiatives, designed to assist local filmmakers with improving their skills and getting their films programmed at festivals around the world.   


HIFF is made possible with support from AFCOOP, the province of Nova Scotia, the Department of Canadian Heritage, the City of Halifax, Screen Nova Scotia, Telefilm Canada, The Coast.

ABOUT AFCOOP: Established in 1974 the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative (AFCOOP) is a non-profit, community organization dedicated to supporting the production and presentation of independent film and moving image-based work in a collaborative, learning environment.

AFCOOP operates with generous support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Province of Nova Scotia and the City of Halifax.
