Due to demand, we’ve added two more sessions – a second Under 35s event and a second Queer event.

Going to the cinema is a classic date-night tradition, which is why we introduced Meet Me At MIFF Speed Dating for 2012 – already one of our most popular events. Speed dating with a twist, Meet Me At MIFF offers you the chance to meet other MIFF-centric people, and potentially find someone to share your popcorn.

So if you’re seeking a friend for the night, the long haul or even the end of the world, MIFF has you covered. Attend one of the Meet Me At MIFF sessions on either Monday 6 August or Monday 13 August, then write your own Love Story or Modern Romance in the aisles (but please keep the Vulgaria to yourselves).

If you choose to take your date to zombie rom-com [REC] Genesis, it’s Safety Not Guaranteed. And MIFF knows that not Only the Young or Your Sister’s Sister are looking for love, so we’ve got an eclectic selection of date movies for you to choose, such as Ruby Sparks and Liberal Arts. If Boy Meets Girl is not you thing, try Keep the Lights On. More literary minded lovers might like to check out Bonsai, while cinephiles may bond over the understated Las Acacias or the beguiling Like Someone in Love.

Who knows? You just may find enduring Amour!
