Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!
*Winners Laurels for each category will be available soon on Filmfreeway. Winners will also be added to the MIFF IMDb festival winners page (only if the film has an existing IMDb listing).
Thank you to all filmmakers and film enthusiasts for entering and/or attending MIFF. . . especially during such a trying time. We hope to see you all next year when we may be able to once again roam freely, shake hands, and hug one another.
We’d also like to thank all the many, many volunteers and companies who donated their time, energy, services, facilities, and talent. Again, it’s amazing how many came forward to help in so many ways. MIFF would be nothing without your generous support.
Last, but not least, THANK YOU FOR ALL DONATIONS. All proceeds go to the No Limits Academy, a local school for handicapped children. Every ticket bought – every mask sold – every donation made — also to this wonderful organization.
