Countdown to MIFF 2019
View Trailers From This Year’s Films
Welcome to the Muscatine Independent Film Festival
MIFF is a showcase of Short Films and is designed to encourage and acknowledge the creative efforts involved with respect to this genre. Participants will enjoy a diverse array of film genres to choose from throughout the weekend, as well as “red carpet” receptions, Q&A sessions, and networking after parties.
MIFF is very supportive of local/regional artists, as evidenced by the “Best Iowa Made Film Category”. It is hoped that providing an awards venue will inspire their creativity and innovative artistic media. This event is also an effort to provide Midwest residents and visiting artists with an engaging weekend of entertainment.
A unique feature of our festival is the infamous “M&M AWARD” (Murder, Mayhem, and More). We are also debuting the “Micro-Short” Category. Telling a story in under 4 minutes is no easy task, but sometimes more is indeed less.
Daily passes to the festival are available at the screening theater for $10
