4th Annual Atlantic Film Festival (AFF), bringing a rich tapestry of cinematic stories to Atlantic Canada and promising eight full days of music, film, and non-stop fun. Regularly drawing a mix of industry professionals and eager film fans from across the globe, AFF transforms the coastal city of Halifax into an international mecca for artistic wonder. The result is a festival experience that is at once intimate and expansive - one that is primed to provide bright talents with the exposure they deserve.
AFF is committed to bridging the gap between promising local filmmakers and the international marketplace that awaits them. A non-profit organization with a passion for community engagement, AFF offers a first look at the best international films of the festival season while also promoting the home-grown talent of the Atlantic. This synthesis is made possible by more than 200 strategic partnerships with industry players, pre-scheduled 1-2-1 meetings, co-production focused roundtable sessions, cutting edge panels with esteemed professionals, visionary keynote speakers, and more.
On the screenwriting front, visiting writers can pitch their first drafts as part of AFF's Script Development Program, where they'll vie for a $10,000 USD development prize and the chance to sharpen their craft with Noel Baker, one of Canada's preeminent story editors.
