MIFF welcomes films that highlight the importance of community, equality, education and determination (meaning positive awareness, overcoming adversities, underdog triumphs, struggle, heroes, and an overall commitment to improving the quality of living in our society). Films presented in the festival will demonstrate a bold commitment to subject matter, creative ingenuity, excellence in cinematic craft, and innovation in storytelling. MIFF will also celebrate the Great State of Texas by introducing ‘The Big Man’s’ film category which will focus on films about and made in Texas.
MIFF exists to showcase the determined filmmaker- the storyteller who’s not afraid to step out into deep water and make waves.
