According to a Skowhegan Drive-in Facebook post, the 24th annual Maine International Film Festival is happening now at the Skowhegan Drive-in for the second year in a row. The Film Festival will take place over ten days, starting on July 9th, and will wrap up on July 18th.

In previous years, the MIFF was held in Waterville. The move was made last year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic to keep everyone safe and socially distanced.

Maybe you're unfamiliar with the Maine International Film Festival, also known as MIFF. If so, the MIFF was founded back in 1998 by the Maine Film Center. Each year MIFF showcases over 100 films that best represent the American Independent and International films, heavily focusing on Maine and New England filmmakers.

During the Maine Internation Film Festival, The Maine Film Center will be accepting donations both online and at the box office in hopes of empowering people of all color to get into the film-making industry.
