Atlantic International Film Festival 

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada / September 13-20, 2018 / finfestival.ca 

With an almost unheard of rate of films programmed from submissions, (18 percent!) this north-of-the-border festival might not remain a best-kept North American secret for very long. The world’s celebrated Canadian and international films achieve a rare synchronicity in the programming at Atlantic International Film Festival: Fest-goers have been some of the first to see Room, Brooklyn, Moonlight, and The Square, and yet didn’t have to leave to discover regional gems like Cast No Shadow, Maudie, and Closet Monster before they went on to garner global recognition. What unites us, not divides us, is central to AIFF, right down to the universal pleasures of mussels, oysters, late-night pub crawls—all indulgences at its bustling parties.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.
