Guests at MIFF 2017

Every year MIFF welcomes a wide variety of guests – local and international – to participate in the festival. From introducing their films and taking part in post-screening Q&As with you, the audience, to sitting on MIFF Talks panels or taking over our social media, our guests are a vital part of what makes the MIFF experience unique.
