Deadline February 28th 2014
Entering it’s 8th year in 2014, the Halifax Independent Filmmakers Festival provides a unique venue for filmmakers and media artists to share their art 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 like Denis Côté, Paul Clipson, Janie Geiser, and Phil Hoffman.
“Our focus is on creating a festival that independent filmmakers want to be a part of, a place where they can come to see films at the cutting-edge of their art form” says Festival Coordinator Nelson MacDonald, “When we look up at the audience and see that half the crowd are filmmakers, we know we’ve programmed the right films for HIFF.”
The 8th Annual HIFF, which takes place June 9-14, 2014, will feature new experimental, animated, documentary, and narrative works from near and far, as well as video installations, artist talks, and a special 40th Anniversary retrospective of the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative. The full program, including a list of visiting filmmakers will be announced in March.
