Springtime is upon us, and with it comes one of our favorite local events – the Monadnock International Film Fest (MONIFF.) Held every April, the stated mission of the Event is to celebrate the diversity of our world through independent films that educate, enrich and engage audiences.

This weekend, April 26-28th you’ll find people of all walks of life attending our well-loved cinematic showcase, providing locals the chance to see a host of independent, international films and rub elbows with Hollywood types right in our backyard.

“The Monadnock International Film Festival is a four-day event held every April that showcases high-quality independent cinema from filmmakers here at home and around the world. MONIFF offers feature-length narrative and documentary films as well as shorts, and gives audiences the opportunity to interface with filmmakers and industry experts through post screening Q&A’s and lively panel discussions.”

It is a fun, weekend-long party held at various landmarks in the area that focuses on internationally acclaimed films in small theatre screenings, films outside of the mainstream applauded for their independent nature and historical value. Indie films. Shorts. Documentaries. Moreover, in addition to the movies, there’s a lively sense of community at the various get-togethers. 2019 Events include an opening and closing receptions, after parties, after-after parties and…brunch! Check out the complete film schedule here and if you already know you have to join in on the fun buy your tickets now.

However, don’t just take our word for it. NH Magazine has praised MONIFF as “the state’s finest up-and-coming film festival in years past, and boy do they deliver.”
