In just two short weeks, the Mississauga Independent Film Festival (MIFF) will begin another year of all-Canadian programming, running from July 25 to 29, 2012. And though it might not technically be a Toronto film event, it’s definitely in the area, and we figured our Toronto Film Scene readers might just be interested.
MIFF was founded by a couple of independent filmmakers who know how difficult, competitive and discouraging the big film festivals can be. Their aim was to lower submission fees, encourage local film talent and provide a forum for film industry networking.
The festival’s lineup consists of full length indie films, shorts, documentaries, animation, music videos and even a web series. Features include: David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method; Jason Lapeyre’s crime thriller Cold Blooded; the romantic drama Waiting for Summer from Senthil Vinu; Rob Heydon’s Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy; animated adventure The Lady of Names and the closing night feature, Footsteps.
The whole festival takes place at Cineplex Odeon Winston Churchill Cinemas (formerly AMC 24 Winston Churchill) in Mississauga, and is definitely worth the short trip out of the city!
